Member since May 2017 Richmond, United States
Background
I started fishing at the early age of 6 on my grandad's six-pack boat for Salmon, Striped Bass, and Rockfish in San Francisco Bay's outside ocean on the Marin coast. I loved to go fishing with my grandad and helping him with the boat. I got my captain license in 1992 and worked in Halfmoon Bay for different charter boat companies running the Huli Cat Capt. Jon Blue Horizon Princton Special, then worked out of Emeryville on the Capt. Hook. I also lived in a Alaska for 8 years, worked for charter boat services in Sitka and Ninilchick fishing for Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, and Lingcod.
