Member since May 2018 Port Alberni, Canada
Background
I was born and raised in Nova Scotia. I was a commercial fisherman for 15 years before moving to beautiful Vancouver Island. Captained a boat in Tofino for a couple years, then eventually started our own fishing charter company. I have been an avid fisherman from the time I started to walk and will continue to do so for as long as I can.
Techniques
One of my favorite styles of sportfishing is trolling, it allows you to cover a lot of different areas and different bait schools which in return make the odds of getting a fish a lot more in your favor.
