Jacob Harris

Member since October 2016 Hopewell, United States
Background
I never "became" a fisherman, it has always been part of me. I grew up fishing mostly farm ponds and small streams with my family. I started getting onto bigger rivers and saltwater in my teenage years through a relative. Seeing those bigger, more impressive fisheries and experiencing some bigger catches really had me hooked! Fishing has always intrigued me never quite knowing what could be on the other end of your line and how big it may be! With so many variables being outdoors every trip is different and a new adventure and I love that.
Techniques
My main techniques for my most targeted species (Blue Catfish) are drifting, controlled drift, and anchoring. Some techniques are more productive than others depending on the season and conditions.
