Operator since 1984
I was sort of raised into it. Ever since I was very young had a passion to catch fish. Being in the out doors, learning about my surroundings. I grew up about 2 miles from Boston. Boston harbor was my training ground . I wanted to be on the water, and the opportunity arouse. Along the way I had the opportunity to meet and learn from the best salt water fisherman there was . Ed Hawley, John White, Lefty Kreh, Ted Williams, and so many more. I been able to fish in some of the greatest places. The passion has never worn off!
