Brett Hite burst onto the Bassmaster Elite Series scene March 13, taking a victory in the first Elite Series event of the season — and of his career.

Hite has competed in B.A.S.S. tournaments since 1998, even at the Tour level, but he elected not to join the Elite Series when it debuted in 2006.

He has since made a living on the FLW Tour, and in 2013, he worked his way through the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Opens to secure a spot on the Elite Series roster.

So, while HIte's name is familiar to some fans of the sport, it's new to others. Fans got to know him a little better in his first Twitter chat today, and the full transcript is below.

Kent R. ‏@F3AR_THE_KNIGHT 

What was a key ingredient to helping you win?

Brett Hite

Finding good healthy grass that was close to the bank. 

 

James Hill ‏@JHillFishing  

First off I want to say Congratz on the roll you've been to start the season on both tours!!!

Brett Hite

Thanks so much, I appreciate all the support!

James Hill ‏@JHillFishing  

With so many consecutive majors in a row Do you think it helps you dial it in better...or does fatigue come into play?

Brett Hite

I think it helps you understand the rhythm of the fish. You just keep on rolling. I'd say it's an advantage. 

James Hill ‏@JHillFishing  

When can we see Brett Hite with his own account on Twitter?

Brett Hite

I can't do it all, so I'm not sure I'm really going to be a Twitter guy.

James Hill ‏@JHillFishing  

Fair enough Brett! Good luck with the rest of your season!! I'll be seeing you in Missouri!

 

Tyson Hofsommer ‏@TysonHphoto  

What are the difficulties of being a bass guy, living in Phoenix?

Brett Hite

I drive to the East Coast with my boat at the beginning of the season, then fly home when I get a break. 

Tyson Hofsommer ‏@TysonHphoto  

What will be the most difficult thing about the Elite Series for you?

Brett Hite

I would say the competition is the difficult thing. 

 

Samuel Davis ‏@sdavisgolf  

How do you use electronics to see what type of bottom (rocks, gravel, grass, etc.) you are fishing? 

Brett Hite

Grass shows up well, you can tell if it's more dense or less. On Humminbird electronics, yellow will be more dense. Yellow shows hard bottom, red a little less and blue even less so. Using your color charts helps.

Samuel Davis ‏@sdavisgolf  

Thank you!
