HOOKED at first Bend! The mystery of the unknown is what I love now with the Gulf of Mexico. I grew up bream,bass and catfishing. Whether it's casting or catching there's nothing better than being on the water. I love to share this passion with others and really enjoy bringing smiles to people's faces and leaving them with long lasting happy memories
