Remington is a young professional fishing and marketing prodigy, who has loved the adventures outdoors from an early age. Remington is influenced by a talented outdoors loving family and professionally trained both on and off the water. Remington, taken to these influences and training, has attracted many major sponsors to his young professional bass fishing and marketing career.
Remington and family have always lived and vacationed on water destinations. Remington first fished in Canada for Pink Salmon and Northern Pike with his Mom during her third trimester of pregnancy with him. The family returned to this Canadian adventure to watch him as a five year old, attract the hits and handle the fighting power of Northern Pike. Remington’s in boat comprehension of tackle and technique at such an early age showed the family he was destined to become a very special fishing talent.
One of Remington’s favorite places in the world to fish are the beautiful Florida Keys. Remington loves catching snappers, groupers of all kinds, countless Yellowtails, Mahi Mahi’s, Sharks, Lady Fish, toothy Barracudas, and more. While on these vacations Remi has snorkeled for Lobster, been kissed by a Dolphin, hand fed an Eel, swam belly to belly with a Manatee and has hand fed a Moray Eel and a huge Tarpoon. The Florida Keys have become a frequent fishing destination for Remington!
Fishing though isn’t always sunshine and islands. Remington started training for bass tournaments during the spring of him turning nine years old. The earliest tournament he could enter was the TBF’s Junior division, consisting of young fisherman from 11-15 years old. Less than thirty days after becoming eleven years old he won, “The Bass Federation Michigan Jr. State Championships! This win publicized Remington’s talents and found himself on the front page of Michigan newspapers. Remington fished on to become a contender for the TBF Jr. World Championships held on Lake Hamilton in HotSprings Arkansas.
In addition, during his first competitive fishing season Remington fished in tournaments against adults with his father as fishing partner. The pair never finished less than third and qualified him for his first national team tournament championships.
Remington entered these tournaments as the youngest ever Pro Staffer for Fishing Complete, Inc…, which is Case Plastics, Zipper Worm Company and the Home of the
