Guest Profile

Matt Luna joins us from sunny San Diego, California. Growing up a baseball guy, fishing wasn’t his primary focus. Yet, Matt still loved getting out with his Dad for some fishing in their local SoCal waters whenever they could. After college and competitive baseball ended, Matt got the itch for a different type of competition. Bass tournament fishing. Now Matt is working his way up the ladder as a Wild West Bass Trail angler and trying to live the dream doing this fishing thing full time. But this episode takes us back to a National Bass West tournament he got to fish with his father. Everything came together for a day they will never forget …

Fishing experience

Matt grew up trying to figure out largemouth bass in SoCal with his Dad. They would take the occasional excursion into the Pacific for calicos and other California ocean dwellers. But after college, Matt went all in on bass fishing. He has been soaking it in ever since, and is now a Wild West Bass Trail angler.
