Eric Wands, 30 years old, blue collar husband and father of two from Southeast Michigan. I started off in just a 10ft sit in chasing smallies, but once I learned about the tournament scene my passion for this sport grew. Biggest accomplishment so far was this past year at a local fishing derby where I placed 1st in a division of kayaks and 2nd overall out of 36 two-man teams on bass boats. The look on the boat guy’s faces were priceless. There isn’t anything I’ve found more peaceful than being surrounded by the beauty of Michigan and the Great Lakes in a Hobie.
