Member since March 2016 Murrells Inlet, United States
Background
I became a fisherman as a young child when i was taught by my father how to angle both fresh and salt water game fish species. As a young man I fished offshore and inshore with my father and uncle aboard their sportfisher trolling and bottom fishing.
Techniques
My preferred style of fishing is light to medium sized spinning gear utilized to perfection against some of inshore fishing's most prized game fish species. Mostly targeting flounder, redfish, and speckled trout.
