Member since June 2022
I worked in pharmaceuticals for 30 years. In 2019, my wife and I decided to retire from the corporate world and enjoy the rest of our years on the water. I began fishing as a small boy and have fished the Coast of North Carolina since 2000. Later, I got my offshore charter business (Reel Time) along with a tackle shop. My passion now is inshore fishing targeting speckled trout and red drum. I am passionate about learning new techniques and enjoy sharing this knowledge every day that I can.
