Brett Austin Cannon
I was born in Dallas, Texas on May 1, 1984. I have two brothers, older and younger. We moved as a family in 1985 to South Florida. I grew up fishing/hunting with my dad and brothers. I played baseball, soccer, and football. Baseball became my only sport in high school - which led to a college baseball career. I was named captain of each baseball team of which I was a member. I never wanted to be outworked by another player and always gave 110 percent. I learned valuable life lessons on and off the baseball field. Injuries shortened my professional career, which ended up being a blessing in disguise. I began hunting and fishing every weekend. I saved some money and bought a camera and slowly started learning the ins-and-outs of videography and photography. Several years later my handwork started to pay off. I began getting noticed. Now I work with some of the biggest names in the industry. I hold a billfish world record for catching and releasing all 9 billfish species of the world in just 26 days. I have been on a few of the best fishing teams in the world. collectively winning close to a million dollars with those teams. I have also been on Realtree's Monster Bucks DVD which has been a dream of mine for years. I've been on television shows and hunted with the biggest names in the industry. I want to take what I've learned from everyone I've worked with and help teach and inspire you.
I want to thank my family for the support, belief and encouragement they have given me. I would not be able to do what I'm doing if it was not for them.
