Member since April 2015 Goodland, United States
Background
I grew up on Marco Island and spent all my free time fishing the backcountry near Marco Island and the surrounding 10,000 islands. I am a full-time firefighter and guide on my days off. I spend multiple days a week on the water so I am always familiar with where the fish are and how we are going to catch them.
Techniques
Inshore Spin, Nearshore Spin, Live Bait & Artificial
