My name is John Van Velkinburgh. I am 59 years old, live in St Louis Missouri and have been bass fishing and fishing tournaments for around 40 years. I fish a lot of the open tournaments at Lake of the Ozarks, Table Rock, and Norfork. I seem to be obsessed with this sport. Every time I pass some water I try to figure out the best place to put a lure. I am self employed and own my own plumbing company in the St. Louis area.
