Member since April 2018 Sarasota, United States
Background
I grew up In the Great Lakes in Michigan and have been fishing since I was a kid. Trapping, hunting, fishing is all I’ve ever known! I have been charter fishing for 25 years, and the best thing I would say is giving people the times of their lives, creating memories that they will never forget, along with learning new things at the same time. My preferred fishing technique is live baiting and my proudest catch was a monster Bluefin Tuna that weighed over 900 pounds.
