    Even as the primary part of the competitive fishing season starts to wind down, there is no offseason for professional angler and Shelbyville native John Hunter.

    Hunter recently closed out the Fishing League Worldwide’s regular season slate of tournaments, experiencing some solid success at tour events early in the year.

    The fisherman took a third-place finish at the Harris Chain of Lakes back in February, and says it has been a solid year for him as a professional.
