Member since April 2018 South Padre Island, United States
Background
I grew up in South Texas, and have always enjoyed fishing out on the water. I enjoy getting to share this love of fishing with others. I believe that you can't catch a fish if your hook isn't in the water. For that reason, I incorporate trolling, bottom fishing, site-casting, and jigging, along with other methods to increase our productivity.
