Jim Moulton

 He has always played sports and loves the competition. Jim started fishing on Lake Don Pedro in 1994 with his friend, who introduced him to bass fishing. Within months he bought his first bass boat. He joined the local Merced Bass Club. At that point, Jim was “All-In” on bass fishing. For the next several years his love for the sport grew with a strong passion.

His results reflect consistence on the Delta. Considering the competition, this is a great accomplishment!
