Born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, Marc began fishing at an early age. Through fishing, his father shared the necessary tools to become a successful angler. It was not until college that the competitive side of fishing sparked his interest. From the beginning, Marc knew he had found something that he could be very passionate about. Marc fishes competitively on weekends every chance he gets, which is most weekends. He also travels to area schools and churches talking to children and adults alike when called upon to talk about the importance of the outdoors and what a change it could make in their lives. Marc also speaks at Sportsman’s functions and other fishing/hunting venues. He has been married since 1993 to his loving wife, Tracy Thomas. They started their family in 1997 and now have three children. They are the biggest part of his life. He loves the Lord, Jesus.
