Matt Westover

Member since February 2016 Biloxi, United States
Background
I have always been a fisherman. The Gulf Coast has been my home since I was about 8 years old. I grew up fishing from my rowboat with my friends down the bayou from us. I started deckhanding on charter boats when I was 13 years old. At 24 I joined the Coast Guard and completed 4 years of active duty service. After I came home from that I figured the time was right to open up my own charter fishing business.
Techniques
My style of fishing changes depending on how the fish are biting. I do what I have to do to get the fish to bite. Fishing inshore for trout and drum is a great time, also fishing offshore for mackeral, sharks, Bull reds, snapper, and cobia is a great time! My techniques range from still fishing, trolling, sight casting, and rig fishing. Come aboard and lets go fishing.
