Brad Hicks

Kettering, OH

Brad started fishing at a young age with his dad at lakes and ponds all around Ohio. Shortly after Brad moved out on his own, he discovered his passion for river fishing. Since then, he’s dedicated a lot of his time fishing the Great Miami River, The Little Miami River, Stillwater River, and Mad River in Ohio in hopes of finding the elusive 20” river smallmouth. His favorite species to chase is the river smallmouth bass. Brad is a Team Bonafide member, part of the Loveland Canoe and Kayak fishing team in Loveland, Ohio, and a host on the Paddle N Fin Podcast.
