Name: Ivan Cruz

Hometown: Castaic, CA  

History: I started fishing at the age of five when my grandparents would take me to the Truckee River and Lake Tahoe.

Favorite Technique: Hands down topwater.

Favorite Yakrod: I see the jerkbait rod as being a real game changer. The rod has a great feel to it but yet enough backbone to work larger lures.
