For me, fishing is the tranquility of being on the water, quality time spent with family and friends, the satisfaction of mastering a skill that requires discipline and patience, and so much more. It's the challenge of finding fish, and discovering what it takes to catch fish in all types of weather. It's the hunt for big fish, and the exhilaration of reeling one in. I have been fishing the waters of Northeastern North Carolina and Southeastern Virginia for over 35 years. I don't wait for fish to come to me; I go to where the fish are. I strive to provide each customer with a positive and memorable fishing experience
