Background
From the start of my fishing career I have enjoyed taking friends and family out on the water and once I received my Captain's license I was able to start sharing my enjoyment for fishing and teaching my clients about fishing. My favorite style is fishing the flats with live bait (pilchards) to chum the fish in close to the boat.
Techniques
Live bait and dead bait fishing and trolling lures around hard bottom and artificail reefs
