Member since January 2017 Gloucester, United States
Background
I grew up in a family that worked on the water. I loved it, watching ships built, christened, and off-loading. Fishing was a natural end. I started at 3-4ish trying to catch whatever, graduating to Flounder, Bass, Trout, Pickerel, Strippers, Cod, Bluefin Tuna, Mahi, Sails, Marlin, etc. All types of fishing bring great joy to me and helping others enjoy is a big part of the fun of fishing.
Techniques
The style of fishing or the techniques are very important to be successful. I have tried very hard to master most techniques from casting plugs, trolling, fly fishing, live lining, bait fishing, sight fishing, jigging, and more. I have been very luching to be taught some of the methods by some awesome teachers. Ed Holly, Al Cappy, --- My favorite technique is the one we use to have a successful day . With over fifty years of experience the fishy waters are my back yard. Successful fun trips are a specialty
