Byron Velvick, who now lives in San Antonio, Texas, brings a diverse resume to Duckett Fishing. He has earned three first-place trophies and has appeared in two Bassmaster Classics during his BASS fishing career. Velvick is a deep cranking and swimbait specialist. He is also a two-time U.S. Open champion and previously held the BASS Record for a three-day limit (Apr.13-15, 2000 Clear Lake, California). Velvick spent two years as a commentator for the ESPN2 show "BassCenter" and has served as an on-the-water reporter and contributing analyst for ESPN's fishing coverage.
