Claude Tristram

Member since May 2016 Islamorada, United States
Background
I have loved fishing my entire life.. I am from Long Island New York where I learned how to fish the northeast canyons. I became interested in the Florida Keys when I was in my late teens. As an adult I came every winter to learn how to fish here. I currently have been running fishing boats in the keys for almost 8 years.
Techniques
I love to live bait Wahoos and kingfish. I sailfish most everyday at some point.. trolling is during the summer and spring months. Our live bait season is from October to April... using mostly ballyhoo and cigar minows.
