Background
I began fishing when I was 3 and haven’t stopped since. I have always dreamed of fishing for a living because it’s my greatest passion and I love getting other people involved. Seeing my guests smile when they catch their first fish is priceless. But it's not just about catching fish – we're also creating memories together!
Techniques
We always troll for salmon and trout. We use downriggers, dipsey divers, and various weighted long lines
