With over 40 years’ experience as a professional angler, Charlie Ingram is a fixture in every bass tournament trail in America. Charlie Ingram is one of the only bass pros to have ever taken a president out fishing. As a matter of fact, President George Bush fished with Ingram as secret service agents follow their every move in boats of their own! During the outing, which was being filmed for his TV show, Fishing University, he caught the largest bass he ever caught, weighing in at 12 pounds! "I didn't mean to show up the president, it just happened!", Ingram concluded.
He is a professional speaker featured at workshops, seminars, hunting and fishing events and has appeared in major publications including FLW Outdoors, Outdoor Life, BASS, North American Fisherman, Bassmaster, Fishing Facts, and Bassin'. He was inducted into the "Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame" in 2010 and served on the Board of Directors for the PAA.
