SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Will Davis has reached the top of the mountain that he has always wanted to climb. Now, using his talent with a fishing pole and Lady Luck on his side, Davis might just capture the most important title there is when it comes to catching bass.
The 30-year old Sylacaugan has taken to casting a rod to provide for his family. That comes with a lot of pressure, but he and his wife, Megan, have welcomed this challenge along with their nine-month old daughter Chandler.
Davis said he started fishing competitively at the age of ten, and he knew around the age of six or seven that this is what he wanted to do.
He is now a professional fisher on the Bassmaster Elite Series.
He started in 2017 with the Bassmaster Open. On the weekend of Nov. 9-11 last year, Davis competed in the Bassmaster Federation National Championship on Pickwick Lake in Florence.
Davis won the whole thing, and he continued strong to qualify for the Elite Series.
Now on the most competitive fishing series in the world, Davis has completed the first two stops on the tour.
Will finished 14th at Lake Okachobee and finished 26th at Lake Seminole to have a 9th place stronghold on the points. That’s incredible heading into the next few events on the Elite tour with the Bassmaster Classic, Lake Murray, and Lake Santi Cooper.
Will has certainly been influenced greatly by his dad William Davis. His father is now owner and operator of Davis Bait Company here in Sylacauga. Will would also like to thank the fine folks at Sylacauga Marine and ATV.
Will said, “My favorite place to fish is the Harris Chain of Lakes in Florida, and if I had to pick a favorite lure from Davis Bait, it would probably be a money-colored jig.”
We are excited to see where this young man ends up with his fishing career. Davis is very talented and very determined to catch that big fish, no matter when or where.
