Lenny Vaughan

Member since January 2017 Manistee, United States
Background
Captain Lenny Vaughan is an avid angler with thousands of hours of experience on the water. He is passionate about fishing and putting his friends and guests on fish. Lenny is especially great with kids, sharing his knowledge with them and helping them land their first fish. He was featured in the "Wilderness Journal Show" and has taken part in various tournaments.
Techniques
I like to get all the guest involved in the fishing trip. I don't run a first mate so we all share in doing what it takes to put the fish in the boat.
