Fred Mooney

Member since April 2018 Whittington, United States
Background
I am a lifetime outdoorsman that had a life-changing experience battling cancer and decided to follow my passion and have never looked back. Crappie is my preferred species but a background in Bass fishing is what drives me to find the big ones.
Techniques
Single pole vertical is my preferred choice but the fish truly dictate which technique we use. Spider riggings or long lining are also a available technique we offer if need be.
