ALEX KLEIN

THE ANGLER

I was born and raised in a fishing family. Fishing has been a part of my life ever since I was little. My father introduced me to tournament fishing at a young age and I have been hooked ever since. Growing up and watching my father (Steve Klein) succeed on the west coast and then my Uncle (Gary Klein) succeed on a national level is what showed me that if you work hard enough that you can have success in this sport. I have to thank my father for showing me and teaching me everything that he knows. He instilled the competitive nature in me and showed me what it takes to succeed. He created the obsession and love that I have for the sport of bass fishing now. That’s what keeps me motivated. The pure passion and enjoyment of the sport and getting a chance to pass it on to others.

I’m a shallow water power fisherman by nature. I’m usually chunking and winding something, flipping, pitching, throw on topwater, and throwing swim baits at anything moving.
