Justin Hamner is married to his high school sweetheart, Christina and a proud father to their beautiful 3 year old daughter, Scarlett. From the time he could hold a fishing pole, Justin’s dad made sure he had one in my hands. While most kids grew up playing baseball and football, all he wanted to do was go fishing. Justin fished his first bass tournament with his dad when he was 7 years old, which lead to him winning three Alabama junior state championships by the time he was 16.
After high school, Justin went straight to work pouring concrete and mowing lawns with the goal of saving up enough money to fish the Bassmaster Opens. After years of working two jobs and fishing whenever he could find the time, Justin finally made the leap into the Opens and qualified for the Bassmaster Elite Series after his second year of the Opens. Through all the hard work and trying times, Justin is now living out his childhood dreams of fishing professionally and doing what he loves every day.
