Karleke Oliver - Hernando, MS

My name is Karleke Oliver. I’m from Hernando MS, and now in college at Ole Miss. Fishing is beyond my most favorite hobby that there is. Ever since I was a little boy learning to fish at 13 I’ve always fell in love with it! Remembering back, to this day my PB, I caught a 10lb 3 ounces Largemouth actually snapping my pole in half and running home and telling my mom “I wish I could fish for a living." She said “Give a man a fish he’ll eat for a day, Teach a man to fish and he'll eat forever."
