Pro vs. Joe Heads Back to “Where it All Began” for Chapman

Lake Quivira, Kan. – Thirty years ago professional angler Brent Chapman was camping with his family at Melvern Lake when he stumbled upon a bass fishing tournament. That was the day Chapman discovered what he wanted to be. 

In episode 10 of Pro vs. Joe presented by Realtree Outdoors, Chapman accepts a challenge from police officer Brian Keeney from Gardner, Kansas to fish Melvern Lake. “Brian mentioned in his challenge that he was a law enforcement officer and with the state of things around the country, I thought it was important for me to give a little back, even if it was just one officer. If I wasn’t a fisherman, I would have more than likely gotten into law enforcement, I really respect the men and women of law enforcement.”

Returning to the lake Chapman spent many days fishing as a young angler was exciting for Chapman, “It had been many years since I fished Melvern Lake, and I heard the smallmouth fishing was getting good. I had a lot of fun filming this episode, and it brought back a lot of memories.”
