Michael Neal has a fishing background that has been built over his years living and fishing around Lake Chickamauga in Dayton Tennessee. It is here that Michael honed his fishing and tournament skills as he became one of the youngest anglers in history to fish on the FLW tour when he set forth on his fishing career in 2012. In a short time, 7 years to be exact Michael has notched 3 tournament wins, 25-Top 10 finishes, 25-Top 20 finishes and has fished the FLW Cup 6 times to his name. In 2019 Michael made a move over to the Bass Pro Tour.

Michael currently (when not fishing tournaments) operates and owns Dayton Boat Dock Tackle shop located next to the Dayton boat launch on Chickamauga Lake. It is here he spends his time in between tournaments. Mike adds “I love fishing and talking to the customers that come through the doors at Dayton Boat Dock Tackle. I can think back to my early days of fishing and how excited I was when I got a chance to go fishing. That is what I get to see every day when I am working at Dayton Boat Dock when the customers come in and ask what are the Chickamauga bass biting on today”?

Hobbies: Hunting, riding ATV’s, and Crappie Fishing.
