My name is Ronnie Getz and I’m a Professional Bass angler here in Southeastern Indiana. I have grown up fishing at a young age with my father and my “pawpaw” Earl. With the help of my very good family friend, Randy French, I began to get more into competitive fishing.” I have been competitively fishing for almost eighteen years now.
Growing up I spent a lot of time fishing in the Whitewater River located in Franklin County Indiana, Brookville Lake Indiana and local farm ponds. I soon developed a great love of Bass fishing. I started fishing small local tournaments in 2000. Now with my wonderful family believing in me, I can forge ahead in pursuit of becoming a highly successful angler.
I spend weeks, days, and countless hours on the water practicing to become the best angler I can be. I currently fish the American Bass Anglers Kentucky Division and few of the Bassmaster Southern Opens Professional Tour tournaments each year, I fully intend on going on the Professional Tour permanently within the next few years.
