Behind the Angler

Daylon’s interest in fishing started at a very young age and quickly became his passion. Once Daylon was old enough to drive he spent many afternoons and weekends on his local lake in Castaic, CA. There he became well known by the lifeguards who after seeing his truck and empty trailer in the parking lot would have to track him down, usually back in some cove to inform him the lake was closing. He carried this enthusiasm with him to college attending New Mexico State University from 2016-2020. While earning his degree in Business Marketing he represented the NMSU Bass Fishing Team. He served as president of the organization for 3 of his 4 years enjoying the travel, competitiveness and team success. After returning home to California Daylon quickly realized he wanted to pursue a career as a professional angler.

In the Boat

I love throwing big swimbaits, so you can always find a big bait or two in my boat. Growing up fishing SoCal reservoirs I am a finesse fisherman at heart so I always have a Stealth Stixx Skinny Pete rigged up with P-Line Tactical fluorocarbon ready at all times no matter what lake or river we’re on.
