Member since June 2015 Corpus Christi, United States
Background
When I was a small boy fishing with my grandpa, we would always go out with fishing guides. These memories birthed a strong passion for fishing. Over the years as my fishing abilities developed I went in to winning many different fishing tournaments. When my Grandpa passed, I realized my passion and joy had changed. I discovered how much gratification, joy, and happiness came from taking others fishing. So, now I strive to give back the same happy memories I had as a kid.
Techniques
Custom built spinning rods 7ft 6 built by Todd's Rod's with Fugi recoil guides and custom winn grips, with Shimano CI4 3000 reels (super small and light weight with high drag capacity) very capable and proved to fight some monster fish, at the same time super light weight keeping you from getting wrist cramps and arm fatigue. allowing you to be able to make more cast and fish longer resulting in catching more fish. Rigging usually is popping corks with a fluorocarbon lead, all reels spooled with 20lb braid, 30lb fluorocarbon leaders, and red ultra point mustad hooks. I use nothing but the best, so that you get the experience the difference.
