Well I got into a bad work accident, I decided if I was going to die at work I rather die fishing! So I opened a charter business and got my captains license. I like to fish because it's not a team sport: you don't need anyone to do it and when you add people it just gets better! My favorite species are Snook, Reds, and Cobia .
