Background
I am a 4th generation charter boat captain who grew up on fishing boats and have never stopped loving it. I like to troll for striking fish and also love to bottom fish for reef species. I tend to prefer lighter tackle for more of a fair fight but when it is necessary, I will pull out the big guns! I am open to trying other peoples favorite style or methods because in this line of work you aren't trying new things and experimenting you won't go far.
