I have been fishing since I was 5 years old. I grew up in the New England area fishing for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bluefin Tuna, and other saltwater species. I entered my 1st tournament at the age of 15. I purchased my 1st boat at the age of 18. I moved to Charleston in 2009 to expand my fishing knowledge and my career.
