WHO IS LARRY NIXON

Nixon, also known affectionately as “The General”, is one of the most respected anglers in tournament bass fishing history. In his years with FLW, he has racked up several wins and finished in the top-25 of the FLW Angler of the Year standings the majority of his Tour years. His best finish in the Forrest Wood Cup came in 2010, when he finished third.

Nixon started tournament fishing in 1977, finishing 19th-place in his first tournament and taking home $600. Nixon said he won a fully rigged bass Ranger boat in his first major bass tournament in 1978 and has won 10 additional boats since then. Nixon’s favorite technique is fishing a worm and his favorite body of water is Toledo Bend. When he’s not fishing, Nixon can be found deer hunting.
