Jared Walker is a Professional Bass Angler that grew up in the Pacific Northwest in a small town called Kalama, WA.  He grew up fishing for Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon on the Columbia River with his family and was also heavily involved in sports growing up.  After High School Jared moved to Redding, CA to attend college and continue to play football.  This is also where Shasta Lake is located and where he started getting into bass fishing.  After a couple years in Redding, Jared transferred to California State University, Chico, where he got his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and met his wife Megan.  From there they relocated to the Sacramento area to start their careers and to start a family. Jared was eager to get back into fishing, bought his first boat and was convinced by one of his friends to fish an upcoming tournament.  His love for fishing and his competitive nature had him hooked on tournament fishing.  In 2013 Jared and his family had an opportunity to change careers and it gave Megan the opportunity to stay at home with their two young kids, Addison & Lucas, along with moving closer to family in Ukiah, CA.  He now lives about 45 minutes away from Clear Lake; the #2 rated bass fishing lake in the country.
