At the age of 14, Bailey stepped into the bass fishing tournament scene with a dream of fishing professionally one day. Between the ages of 14-16, he fished competitively in local fishing clubs surrounding Daphne, AL. At 16, Bailey began his career as a co angler by fishing the FLW Bass Fishing League in the Bama Division and two Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Opens. Out of these three tournaments, he placed 2nd in the Bassmaster Southern Open on Lake Seminole. For all of 2017, he fished as a co angler on the FLW Tour. In 2018, he was fortunate enough to fish his first year as a professional in the FLW Costa Series and the Bassmaster Opens at just 18 years old. With his success in the FLW Costa Series in 2018, Bailey was presented with the opportunity to compete on the FLW Tour in 2019. After two years on the FLW Pro Circuit, he looks forward to furthering his career with BASS. Bailey has two major goals: Qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series and the Bassmaster Classic. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
