How do I accurately introduce myself? Well, my name is Matt Ball and I currently live in Little Hocking, Ohio just across the West Virginia and Ohio border, but will always call Grafton, WV my true home. I grew up hunting and fishing in the beautiful lakes and streams of WV. I am the proud father of four awesome kids, three boys and one girl and have been blessed with the most beautiful and caring wife of 21 years. We as a family enjoy fishing and camping all throughout WV and Ohio with friends and family. I am also a very avid bowhunter and enjoy spending time chasing deer and just being out there in God’s creation.
I am a proud member of the Mountain State Kayak Anglers and enjoy spending time with the great group of friends that the MSKA family has given me.
I recently received the honor and blessing of winning the first Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship at Kentucky Lake. I look at it as a great platform to represent my faith and the Mountain State and introduce more people into the world of Kayak Fishing.
I am thankful that parents raised me to have a love for all of God’s creation and taught me to respect it and all those around me. And to my wife for being my rock and supporting my dreams.
I am honored to join the Jackson family and hope to do all I can to help promote the sport of Kayaking and Kayak Fishing. I look forward to seeing everyone out on the water!
