As a resident of Rome, Georgia, and a father of four, Gene loves to fish close to home on Lake Guntersville and Chickamauga. Gene is passionate about bass fishing, but his videos are created to help everyone learn no matter the species. Intending to teach the world to fish, especially kids that may not have a parent or guardian that knows how to teach them to fish, the Flukemaster YouTube channel was created. He has provided videos for beginners with basics in knot tying to extremely detailed insight on bass behavior and the use of electronics. Gene leaves no topic uncovered and continues to provide highly educational information to help anglers of all skill-sets up their angling game.
