I've been fishing the local waters since I was 9 years old. Grew up fishing off the beach and family members' boats. I progressed from there to doing tournaments and charters. I fish using live bait, chunking, and trolling. It all depends on what the fish are biting on that day. We have many things in our arsenal to bring the catch on board.
