Member since February 2015 Fort Lauderdale, United States
Background
At 15 years old, I worked at the Lauderdale Marina fuel docks after school and over the weekends. It was there that I met many other fishermen who invited me to fish on their boats. I was young and eager and happy to go along. The following year, I worked at a tournament tackle shop and was asked to fish the Bahamas Billfish Championship. I am still involved in tournament fishing as my time allows.
Techniques
Daytime Swordfishing and kite fishing is the best type of fishing here in fort lauderdale and come spring time if you want to catch a monster shark lady pamela 2 is the boat for you.
