I started at 2 years old fishing with my grandfather they called him Dock Brown also my uncle Greg Brown and my other uncle Lloyd Brown on the Cape Fear River Lock & Dam #1 in N.C. So I watched and learned from them and other Charter boat Captains through the years. So now I'm taking fishing to another level.
