Member since June 2020
I learned how to fish predominantly from my grandfather and my uncle here in Galveston Bay. Then, I continued to learn from them on Lake Livingston. I have always had a great love for fishing and the outdoors. On my father's side of the family, I am from 19 generations of commercial fishermen originating from the Isle of Vis in Croatia. My father passed when I was very young and without his influence, I studied graphic design and business. Eventually found my way on my own back to fishing. For the past 8 years I have never been happier than being a charter fishing guide. I really enjoy learning more each day and teaching others techniques, and I love spending time working with children on their fishing techniques and help to build their character.
