I grew up on the water and loved to fish. I wanted to share that love with others and found the perfect way to do that. I eat, sleep, and breathe fishing and it runs in my blood. I love the fight of a good fish and seeing the looks on other people's faces as they catch fish. I started working on boats when I was 12 years old and fell in love with the water.
