Career – Army and LunkersTV
Robert was born September 26, 1989 in Fort Worth, Texas. He joined the Army and as a part of 11 Bravo was deployed to Kirkuk, Iraq in 2008. After his honorable service, Terkla was discharged for medical reasons in the year of 2014. While some struggle with return to a normal life, Robert decided to turn his passion for fishing into an income stream.
He founded LunkersTV, where he has been posting frequently videos about bass fishing and other things close to his heart ever since. His most viewed videos are currently “Bow Fishing in a Shallow Creek!!!” and “The First Time I Killed Someone”, both with over six million views! No wonder his net worth keeps growing.
But he is also sharing diverse videos about hunting in the wilderness, searching through abandoned storage unit, and other similar stuff. He is often collaborating with another YouTuber and fellow fisherman Michael Hsiao. And from a brief look at his most recent posts, it becomes clear that Robert still diligently posts every day. His success is definitely hard-earned.
Family – Wife and Daughter
Robert met his wife in 2011 after some period of dating. Her name is Sarah and she holds a college degree in health education and promotion from Georgia Southern University. She graduated in 2013 and soon after graduation found a job at American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
His wife Sarah (born August 20, 1989) and Robert have a daughter named Avery. But taking her of their family is not the only thing that Sarah does. She runs a successful Instagram account with over 62 thousand followers. On the top of that, she is selling clothes in online store named Rose & Thorn Clothing Co.

Sources of income, salary
Robert Terkla is in an enviable position of making money from his hobby. He just records things he loves doing, posts them at LunkerTV and make a lot of money from online advertisement. Although YouTube isn’t such a goldmine as it once was, for a well established YouTuber like Robert, with millions of views on his popular videos, it is still a very nice income stream that most of us only dream of.
Even Robert is trying to diversify his assets though. Back in 2014, he bought a stake in UMG Media, a growing gaming company that focuses at the e-sports. Making money in online gaming events, like tournaments and ladders, is a growing space and Terkla is well aware of that. UMG Media has been focusing on North American market so far. In 2018, venture capital company Blackhawk Resource Corporation purchased the rest of UMG Media for total sum of amazing $26.4 Million, buying out the remaining 80.8 percent from minority shareholders like Robert.
On the top of his channel, Robert also promotes himself through his Instagram account. Although this is a secondary social media platform for him, he already amassed 611 thousand subscribers. And we are not surprised at all. If you are a fan of bass fishing and you like watching YouTube videos, LunkersTV is almost mandatory for you to follow. His vlog also features links to other similarly oriented vloggers, such as Demolition Ranch and Googan Squad.
