Angler Spotlight - Walt De Graaf





I moved to Virginia from New Jersey about 17 years ago. After my retirement, I decided to become an Elvis impersonator, specializing in private shows, weddings, and private parties, including charity events.

I joined Bass-Jons and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a greate group of guys. I usually fish with my friends Eddie Sal, Jim Carlson, and my neighbor Bruce Gregory. We all have a great time. I have had my share of 7 and 8 pounders, but I am witing for the big one! Maybe this year!

Walt is one of the nicest guys in the club, and he represents everything that is good about Bass-Jons.  He is always willing to "Share the Knowledge", and he is usually one of the first to respond when another non-boater member wants to go fishing.  Walt is well known for his prowress with a senko, and he always seems to be able to find a big bass.  Walt is so generous and well respected that I had multiple people recommend that Walt be our Angler Spotlight.
