Brad Hicks

Brad started fishing at a young age with his dad at lakes and ponds all around Ohio. Shortly after Brad moved out on his own, he discovered his passion for river fishing. Since then, he’s dedicated a lot of his time fishing the Great Miami River, The Little Miami River, Stillwater River, and Mad River in Ohio in hopes of finding the elusive 20” river smallmouth. His favorite species to chase is the river smallmouth bass. Brad is a Team Bonafide member and part of the Loveland Canoe and Kayak fishing team in Loveland, Ohio.

To say I’m passionate about the outdoors & the sport of bass fishing seems like an understatement. I don’t remember a time in which I wasn’t enthralled by nature and all it had to offer. Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve constantly read, researched, and practiced all the new, and even the old, techniques to expand my knowledge. I live for the pursuit and I feel most at home on the water.

After years of fishing & competing at all different levels, I found kayak fishing and truly fell in love with the sport and the kayak fishing community. My mission now is to help grow the industry and bring more & more anglers to the sport, while also chasing my dreams of competing at the highest level.

I’ve been blessed to be a part of the fishing community and honored to represent some off the best people and brands in the industry. I can only hope, that through my platform, I can help others fall in love with the sport in the way I have.
