I have always loved the outdoors and fishing is something that most people can agree is a blast! I started charter fishing with my uncle on school breaks when I was a teenager then in 2001 I got my first job as a full time mate and have been in the buisness ever since. I continue to fish because it is a great feeling to take people who have never fished or don't get to go enough or just don't know how to, and catch them their first fish or biggest fish or most fish they have ever caught!
