I started fishing as a child, when I used to live with my grandmother. There was a small lake close to her house, and I would go down with a yoyo and catch small freshwater fish. Years later, I moved to the coast in Punta Cana and learned tactics for offshore and bottom fishing, got a job as a first mate, and started fishing on a boat.
