Member since July 2016 St. Bernard, United States
Background
I’ve been an avid inshore fisherman for years, i love it and have a strong passion for it. I live for sunrises and sunsets on the bayou and putting people on fish as much as I can. The enjoyment I see from the people on my boat makes the work I do all worth the while.
Techniques
I like to run around and throw baits under a cork unless i see the need for a Carolina rig.. live bait under a cork is a great tactic in our area..
