Hi, my name is Dustin King, I am 22, and love to fish as you can tell. I currently live in Rainbow City, Alabama on the beautiful Lake Neely Henry with my wonderful grandparents. I started fishing when I was able to hold a rod and loved every minute of it.
Somewhere around the age of 7 my grandfather and I had the privilege of going to the Bassmasters classic weigh-in when they came to Birmingham, Alabama. I will never forget this trip because it is when I first decided to fish at the pro level. Well, my pro career was put off for a couple of years due to elementary school but at the age of 12 I fished my first tournament. When the day was over me and my grandfather finished 3rd winning $750. I knew then that fishing for money was the thing for me.
Now ,I am 22, and have won several more tournaments, many top 5 finishes and many more top 10 finishes. I would like to think that I have a natural talent of finding and catching fish that some pros have yet to acquire. I have a 2 year degree in Business Management from Gadsden State Community College and also a Marketing degree from Jacksonville State University. I hope to use my knowledge of fishing and my education to work full-time in the fishing industry.
