Hillsborough County Sheriff Deputy, Larry Davis Jr., Wins Guy Harvey Outposts Lake Okeechobee Fishing Adventure
LAKELAND, FL SEPTEMBER 21, 2015‹ For Larry Davis Jr., who spends his working hours as a motorcycle patrol officer for Hillsborough County, Florida, a day fishing or hunting is a much welcomed opportunity to decompress and relax.
Thanks to fishing legend and marine wildlife artist Guy Harvey, Officer Davis of Lakeland, Florida will be adding a new bucket list item to his outdoor adventures on November 21st when he joins Captain Scott Kerslake for
a fishing outing to remember on Lake Okeechobee.
Davis recently won an on-line competition for a Guy Harvey Outpost Lake Okeechobee fishing adventure. The drawing also included a cache of personalized Guy Harvey merchandise and fishing gear.
³You know, I¹ve been fishing as long as I can remember,² said the Central Florida native, the son of Sgt. Larry Davis Sr., a retired Hillsborough County Sheriff Deputy. ³Mostly small lakes and some offshore grouper
fishing, but I¹ve never fished Lake Okeechobee. I¹m really looking forward to this.²
The drawing hosted by Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts included freshwater lure kits from DOA Lures, a custom rod from SaltH2o Customs, Guy Harvey Fishing shirts, two personalized Guy Harvey Law Enforcement Mugs and bass fishing decals from Guy Harvey Outpost.
A professional tournament fisherman, Capt. Kerslake is considered one of lake Okeechobee¹s top bass fishing guides. Lake Okeechobee, considered the Mother of the Everglades, is known internationally for its Largemouth Bass Fishing. The Big O is the second largest lake in the United States.
