My father had me fishing at around age 5. I got hooked pretty hard and quickly. Fishing is practically all I do. Taking people fishing is a truly fulfilling job. I also fish with The Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, also known as B.A.S.S., Major League Fishing, previously called FLW, and American Bass Anglers. My son, Captain Hunter, worked as my mate since age 9. Now he's a licensed Captain who knows all my tricks plus adds his own expertise to the day.
