Chris Jones has been fishing tournaments since he was just 7 years old and won his first while he was still in the single digits. Jones has two BFL and two Weekend Series wins to his credit, and competed in B.A.S.S. Weekend National Championship at Lake Guntersville in 2010.

While attending the 2013 Bassmaster Classic to support his friend, Jason Christie, Jones made a vow to wear his Classic wristband until he qualified to for the event himself. His aggressive personality makes him a strong and versatile competitor. During the Central Open in Oklahoma, Jones weighed in fish on three different baits, and won the event despite boat engine trouble that cost him more than an hour of fishing time.
