Connect Outdoors Pro Staff Team - Angler Profile - Jeff Hotz
I am a retired Army Veteran Who has a passion and love for fishing. I have been fishing all of my life but really got more serious about it after Retiring from the Army in 2013. I mainly target largemouth and smallmouth bass but love to fish for striper's, crappie, trout and any other fish that will tug on my line.
My favorite fish by far to fish for is smallmouth bass I can never get enough of fishing for them and I have a great river 5 min from my house that is full of them!
I also enjoy some salt water in shore fishing as well but do not get to do it near as much as I would like too.
