About Ron Yurko
Ron Yurko is a Legend in Professional Bass Fishing. He has been fishing professionally since the age of 19. Now 70 (plus) and with over a Million Dollars in Career Winnings to his credit, he is well known in the Pro Bass Fishing Circuit as a “Flippin’ and Shallow Water Artist” able to lure the big ones out of some of the toughest spots that many of the Pros simply pass by due to their difficulty.
Sought after for Speaking and Seminar/Workshop Engagements, Ron has been enjoying his retirement, making a home near one of his favorite fishing spots, Lake Talquin, in Tallahassee, FL, for the past 5 years.
His teaching/writing career has spanned nearly the length of his fishing career, and he has come out of retirement to take up another of his most beloved hobbies-teaching. After much prodding and task-mastering from his family and friends, Ron has committed his 50 years of Bass Fishing knowledge and natural affinity for teaching and writing into this, the Secrets Of Bass Fishing project.
Here, he shares his knowledge and guarded secrets with those who would like to enjoy as successful a career in Bass Fishing, and those who simply want to enhance their hobby-fishing experience.
