This video was shot at the Bassmaster Classic LII during media day. In this video, John Cox talks about his first memory of fishing and winning a t-shirt from the local TV station. From there he talks about his first bass, first boat, first tournament and so on.

The last question I asked him was when did he feel he had finally made it. His answer to that question is pretty remarkable. Something you’ve probably come to expect from John Cox.

I hope you enjoy this look into John Cox’s life as an angler.

Sorry for the not so great audio. There were numerous other interviews going on at the same time.
