Member since March 2016 Pensacola Beach, United States
Background
My background comes from commercial fishing. I am what you would call a local yokel (native) to the Gulf breeze area even though I didn't get to live on the water. My father definitely raised me on the water – I spent most of my summers on the back of a commercial fishing boat. That was my summer camp for 15 years! Then, I found myself on a charter boat as a deckhand and decided that I could make a better future for my family and myself by putting more effort into the charter fishing business.
Techniques
Catching fish is my style and my favorite technique is whatever it takes to get a bite fishing techniques are constantly changing so if you only know a few the struggle is going to be there
