Long before becoming one of professional bass fishing’s brightest stars, Brian Latimer was known for his on-lawn skill and expertise. And, the leading role he played in the growth of his family’s multi-generational landscape contracting and retail businesses. Brian’s love for both outdoor landscapes and fishing were instilled in him at an early age. “I began working in the family business as soon as I was old enough to safely operate a zero-turn. And, I can’t even recall the exact point in my early childhood when I began fishing alongside my dad,” Brian recalls. Having competed in more than 170 of fishing’s most prestigious pro events, the FLW-turned-B.A.S.S phenom has reeled in two career tournament wins, 10 career Top-10 finishes and nearly $250,000 in winnings since breaking on the scene in 2004. Brian, his wife Rachelle, and their two young sons, Brevyn and Brooks, continue to reside in his hometown of Belton, SC.
