Background
I am a firefighter and run charters on my days off from the fire house. I have been fishing the waters off of the Mississippi coast since i was old enough to hold a fishing pole. I stay on the water and on the fish year round. I fish for just about anything that swims in our waters. I don't just target one or two types of fish like a lot of people. That being said, my specialty is wade fishing the islands for Speckled Trout and Redfish.
