Corneilus Harris grew up in Zanesville, OH and began fishing at very young age Wading the Muskingum and Licking rivers for smallmouth bass, saugeye and anything else he could coax into biting at various times of the year.

Corneilus was introduced to the AEP Recreation Grounds presently identified as the Jesse Owens State Park and Wildlife Area by his father at a very young age and has since become quite known throughout the Buckeye state and beyond for his  ability to locate and catch huge Large Mouth Bass on the Jesse Owens Wildlife Area and ODNR managed areas within the east-central and southeastern regions of the state of Ohio.

Corneilus Harris
Taking That Extra Step

Over the years, Corneilus took it upon himself to set himself apart from other anglers. He did this by mastering techniques during cold water periods and producing " huge " largemouth bass consistently. He did not figure this out overnight. There had been countless hours of trial and error before the Giants came steadily. He believes that the number one key to landing fish during cold water periods of the year is patience. He goes out and focuses on one or two bites per outing during these periods. Typically one of the bites result in the fish of a lifetime. As a result of his efforts in being dedicated to fishing during cold water periods, Corneilus has become known for his year-round " whenever ice is absent " ability to locate and catch enormous largemouth bass being featured in publications including the Columbus Dispatch, Country Living Magazine, Fit Magazine, Ohio Magazine, and The Toledo Blade
