Bradley began tournament fishing at an early age. Partnering with his dad, Bradley participated in adult buddy tournaments in the Kentucky River Bassmasters. From that point on he was literally hooked on the sport of fishing.
Bradley qualified in the 11-14 age group to represent Kentucky in the 2004 Junior Bassmaster World Championship?s inaugural event. Just 13 years old at the time, Bradley won the tournament held on Lake Norman in North Carolina. Bradley has been a 2-time qualifier for the Junior Bassmaster World Championship, and a qualifier for the FLW/National Guard Junior World Championship.
In 2008 he was a team member on the Kentucky Bass Federation Nation State Team and was the Kentucky representative to the Federation Nation Championship on Milford Lake in Junction City, Kansas. Bradley has come a long way as a fisherman since getting his start at age 8, but more importantly, he has values and goals that make him an upstanding young man.
