Owner Blake Becker contributes his love of fishing to his grandfather, Grandpa Murray, who introduced him to bass fish while growing up in Kentucky. Blake has been an avid bass fisherman his whole life as a result of his time spent with Grandpa Murray. He is known for giving out tips and tricks to the local paper.
Blake’s wife Melissa was taught to fish out on Twin Lakes by her father. She’s always enjoyed fishing; Blake and Melissa’s first date was a bass fishing date on that oh so familiar Twin Lakes. As luck would have it, Melissa caught the biggest fish that day and Blake knew he had a keeper. Talk of opening a local tackle shop was born between the two anglers early in their relationship. Now they hope to teach their baby boy Michael to love fishing too!
Every business has goals. For BTS this is to partner with local tournaments and support youth in the growth of the sport. To Blake and Melissa Becker, owners of BTS, it’s more than the sale of bass fishing products, it’s a home away from home for the local bass fishing community. BTS aspires to create positive, lasting experiences for avid bass fishermen and their families as well as those new to the sport. A love like this deserves to be shared; BTS is happy to talk bass anytime!
