My Dad introduced me to fishing at 5 years old and I've been going hard at it since!!! It's not just something I do, it's who I am. I fish for every species of sport fish available in salt & fresh water utilizing all gear types. I really enjoy introducing my world to my guests and teaching them to have the best success on landing their catch.
