My father and grandfather were avid outdoorsmen who shared their love for the outdoors with their children. Living close to both fresh and salt water has made me a more experienced Captain. I now have my own outdoor fishing show locally and on ABC. Check us out on YouTube: Father and Son Outdoors TV.
