Jim Williams

Bio — Jim was born and raised in Georgia. He started fishing with his Dad as soon as he could hold a fishing rod. When he got married and started raising kids fishing got put on the back burner for a number of years. 

In the fall of 2016 a friend put him in a Nucanoe Pursuit for a morning of fishing. Jim immediately fell in love with kayak bass fishing and hasn’t slowed down since.

Jacob Miles

Bio — Born and raised in Burlington, NC, Jacob learned to fish out of the back of his dad’s bass boat on Lake Cammack. He started kayak fishing in 2014 and tournament fishing with Carolina Kayak Anglers in 2015.

In 2018 he married his best friend and biggest supporter, Hannah. They have a German shepherd, Sam, and a black lab mix, Kota(yes like Minn Kota). Both his wife and the dogs love the water and fishing as much as he does, although his wife prefers the saltwater fishing.
The 2019 KBF National Championship will be his second NC appearance and plans on it not being his last.
