Background

Targeting all offshore and inshore species such as Striped Bass, Bluefish, Cod, Haddock, Pollock, Shark species including Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks, and Thresher Sharks, and Tuna including Giant Bluefin Tuna and also School Bluefin Tuna, which he targets many different ways from trolling squid rigs, jigging while adrift, casting top water lures, or live lining.

We'll usually fish by drifting or on anchor, dependent upon sea conditions and species.
