Chad has competed on both professional tours — B.A.S.S. & FLW. His favorite lakes are in Florida which is where he secured his personal best, 13-lb, 7-oz largemouth. Chad is very diversified. He prefers power fishing in shallow water with heavy vegetation using heavy tackle, but also enjoys spending time fishing depths of greater than 50 feet on his home lake of Table Rock in Missouri.
