Angler Of The Year
We take immense pride in recognizing our Angler of the Year—an individual who exemplifies not only outstanding sportsmanship but also a deep engagement with the club's activities and an unparalleled mastery of the art of fishing. This accolade is a celebration of excellence that extends beyond the waters, embodying the true spirit of our angling community.
Ken Roundtree started bass fishing about thirty years ago while living in Miami, Florida. He mostly fished the South Florida lakes, canals, and Florida’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Okeechobee.After retirement from the fire department, Ken and his wife Libbie relocated to Georgia where he began bass fishing more seriously. Ken learned of Rodbenders Bass Club and decided this was the bass club for him, becoming a Rod Benders Bass Club member in 2014.
Ken shares “it’s been a real learning experience. My bass fishing skills have improved greatly from things that I learned from veteran and new Rod Benders. It’s a great honor to have been crowned Rod Benders “Angler of the Year” for 2017 and 2018. I will strive to represent the Rod Benders in a manner that makes my fellow members and fisherman proud.”

I have been an Active Fisherman since 1998. It is no secret that I take fishing seriously. I enjoy promoting and teaching the fundamentals of fishing. I have been a member of FLW for 9 years and a lifetime member of Bass. I am looking forward to taking this to the next level in 2017. My co-fishermen call me “Hercules“, a name that was given to me through the years. I would welcome the opportunity to have additional Sponsors to endorse, promote their equipment, products and services. I would like the fishing world to join me in promoting the sport of bass fishing and impacting our Youth.
