Build Back Brady
Brady Winans is long term Native Texan who has fished competitively for almost 35 years. Brady has fished trails such as Media Bass, Ignition Bass, Victory Bass, Texas Team Trail, Team Trail Outdoors and even larger trails such as the Bassmaster Opens and MLF Toyota Fishing Series.
On top of being an angler, Brady is a 18 year veteran of the fishing industry. He has worked for the Rep Agency, Sunbelt Sales, for his entire fishing industry career. What makes Brady close to the 6th Sense brand is that he has been a rep for 6th Sense since the very early days of the company. Back in the day when we only had about 8 hard baits and some terminal tackle. Brady has been a part of our ride to where we are today and he breathes 6th Sense.
On December 12, 2021, Brady and one of his closest friends went fishing on Cedar Creek Reservoir in Texas. They started early and were traveling to where they wanted to start off their morning fishing, the Dam. As they took off and travelled to the dam, the lake was clear of any weather or fog. As they got within a few miles of the dam, they encountered a couple fog banks that had come over the top of the dam and drifted into the lake. Brady’s partner did as he should and reduced speed. As they approached the dam, the dam came upon them faster than anticipated and they struck the dam.
Upon impact, Brady was thrown forward into the trolling motor and graphs on the boat and then was thrust into the air until he landed on the top of the dam. Brady suffered a broken spine, a shattered left ankle, a compound fracture of his right femur, a broken clavicle and two broken ribs. Upon arrival of emergency services, the decision was made to CareFlight Brady to UT Health Trauma in Tyler, Tx. Upon arrival at the hospital, he was sedated and within the next week, he had three surgeries to repair his injuries. He spent a week in ICU and continues to remain in the hospital to this day. Brady has retained some feeling in his lower extremities and as his injuries and swelling reside, he should continue to improve. He has several more surgeries ahead of him as well as a long rehab battle.
Brady is married and has two young boys. Ages 4 and 7. His world revolves around his family. They are his inspiration to making a full recovery and he is prepared to go the distance to make sure he returns home as complete as he can be. No matter how long it takes. At 6th Sense Fishing, we are committed to helping our own and those who helped us, and we are excited to release these special shirts & decals, and all proceeds from the sales of these items will go to Brady’s family to help with the financial burden he faces during recover. Your support of these items will truly make an impact and help more than you know. #buildbackBrady
