Adrian Avena, aka "Jersey Boy", was born and raised in New Jersey. His love for fishing came when his father took him panfishing. Sitting by his father's side, they would patiently watch for the bobber to "tic". It didn't matter if it was 5 minutes or 20 minutes, every tic made his heart jump wondering what on earth could be at the end of his line. Fishing today is no different for him. Every "tic" of his worm, every thud of his jig, and every time his crank bait rod loads up is the moments he lives for.  

Adrian pursued his dream starting on the FLW Tour for  four years, and then competed on the Bassmaster Elite Series for three years (2016-2018). He now  competes on the Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour. 

In the offseason, Adrian is passionate about saltwater fishing, commercial conch fishing, home improvement, and spending time with his wife, children, family, and friends.
