Angler Jared Russell hails from Redford Township, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. He is the second oldest of seven children and son to Chris and Cynthia Russell. Two weeks after his 17th birthday, he enlisted as a 76Y Unit Supply Specialist in the United States Army Reserve. As a high school junior, he attended basic combat training at Fort Jackson, SC in the summer of 1990.
As a child, he enjoyed the local lakes as well as Michigan’s Great Lakes. Camping, fishing, and hunting were a family tradition but he left that behind after joining the service. He has since renewed his childhood passion for fishing (freshwater) and is enjoying learning new fishing skills in the world of salt fishing. He and Robin are now real estate agents with eXp Realty and serve the greater Savannah, Fort Stewart/HAAF areas. His passion is still to serve and interact with his second family… the military.
SEGKBF would like to thank Jared for his continuous service to the United States of America and for joining SEGKBF as a bass angler.
