John Pearl grew up on the shores of Clearlake, developing a love for fishing by the age of 2 years old. At 12, seasoned veteran, George Hawley took John under his wing paving the way to where we are now. John began fishing tournaments 2003, and a decade of hard work lead to the opening of J. Pearl Guide Service in 2013. John can be found fishing many tournament circuits, like Apex Pro Tour, Wild West Bass, FLW and Won Bass. When John is not guiding or competing, he enjoys spending time volunteering in the local youth tournaments. It is most important to teach the next generation the love of fishing and conservation.
