LEADER BOARD – CLUB MEMBERS
while fishing guide Todd Kersey might look the part, wearing sunglasses and a ball cap, and sporting a deep tan, at heart he is a driven entrepreneur. Kersey (Pictured on an expedition with a young client) had run several different businesses until about 10 years ago when he chanced upon his current endeavor. “I had sold a business and didn’t have any idea what I was going to do next,” recalls Kersey, a lifelong fisherman and member of the Tower Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “I looked into the industry and realized nobody had put it together as a business. I put my business background to it, and away we went. ” Kersey hasn’t slowed down since. His company, Bass Online, Inc., employs nearly 30 guides and serves freshwater lakes and rivers in Florida from
Orlando to the Florida Keys.
Kersey, 41, also speaks regularly to groups, hosts a weekly radio show, and films fishing programs for networks such as ESPN and Outdoor Life Network. Despite his hectic schedule, he has never lost sight of his love of the sport. “Fishing is one of the last great American things where it doesn’t whether you’re 1 or 100 years old, whether you’re black, green, white or blue. Everyone has the same opportunity. That’s the beauty of it.” –
