I started my fishing career by washing boats just to be able to go along on fishing trips at the age of 16. Growing up in Ocean City, Maryland I spent every summer fishing and working on the docks. At the age of 18, I moved to Jupiter, Florida and started my first full-time mating job. Over the next few years, I spent winters in Florida and the Bahamas and summers in Maryland mating on boats. Then, I spent the next few years fishing heavy tackle in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Ascension Island and Cape Verde. After 17 years of mating, I decided to step up to the bridge.
