Ultimate Bass

Eric Couch

Hello, My name is Eric Couch.  I am 27 years old and call Northeast Alabama home.  I feel very honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the Ultimate Bass team. I have called this area home since I was born.  Guntersville Lake has always been close to home and I consider it my “home” lake.  As far as fishing goes, I have been fishing since I was very small.  When I was younger, trips to the Tenn. River came every weekend.

My fishing time has been cut down recently, but my excuse is a very good one.  I have a 2 1/2 year-old named Erica and another little girl named Emily, who will be 1 year very soon.  I have been married to my wife Elizabeth for almost 5 years.  I love taking my oldest girl fishing at local ponds.  She gets very excited when she catches one.  She has taken to fishing quicker than I thought she would.

My favorite type of lure to use for Largemouth are soft plastics.  Everything from Trick worms to stick-baits, to grubs and Lizards.  Spinnerbaits are a close second.  As of now I’m not officially sponsored by any tackle companies, but a couple of local trucking companies sponsor me.  I have been a Semi-Truck mechanic for the past 9 years.  My family owns a trucking company, I am the Shop Foreman in the repair shop.

Some close friends, family members, and I have started a local bass club. Hopefully, next year our membership will grow.  I usually try to fish at least 2 of the local wildcat tournaments a week.  Starting next tournament season, I will be fishing the larger tournaments more.  I look forward to working with the rest of the crew here at Ultimate Bass.
