I had a PLAN and that’s where it all began. In grade school, I competed in every tournament that would allow a youngster in. After graduation, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I needed a career outside of the fishing world that I could afford to fish and still have the time off to pursue my dream. I graduated from UAB in 1992 with a Bachelor Degree in Nursing. I worked at UAB hospital in the Intensive care unit for four years. I competed in as many tournaments as I had time to fish, becoming quite competitive on any lake on the Coosa River. In 1992, I also married my best friend and high school sweetheart, Cindy. I met her on a boat dock at Lake Weiss eight years prior and if there’s anything such as love at first sight, that was it! After four years at UAB Hospital, I decided to go on to anesthesia school. That was at University of Tennessee. Talk about a house divided………..anesthesia school was no joke. It was tough, sleeping with a text book, up all hours of the day and night, and reading hours upon hours. Hands down it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Not the book work, but having to give up my fishing for those years. Anyway, I made it through that gauntlet and graduated with honors from UT.
Takayuki has been working with the goal to participate in American tournaments. He competed in the MLF Toyota Series in 2020 with a top 10 finish at Lake of the Ozarks. His 4th place finish in points race in the Plains Division qualified him for the MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit.
Takayuki says he can’t speak English well, but really enjoys taking to his American friends in English. He eats steak almost every day during his stay in America. If you see him at the hotel, he will definitely be cooking steak for dinner.
