Techniques
"It's best to always fish for what is biting that particular time of year and time of day. I'm constantly changing and adapting to have the most options for different species throughout the year. I like to ask the clients what their goals are for the trip, whether it be just catching some fish, learning different techniques, or targeting specific species and I try to cater the day for what they want." –Pj McDeid
