Member since May 2017 Cartagena, Colombia
Background
From the start of my life, I was born into a salt family The first time I was taken fishing at the age of two. Fishing is part of my soul. From then on I set out to conquer all styles of fishing from the high county in Colorado to the Colombian Carribean. I became more and more knowledgeable as time progressed as one would. My passion for others to have a great fight and enjoy a fish for dinner the same day is my goal for our customers.
Techniques
Offshore trolling. Spearfishing. Jigging. Sword fish/ Deep Drop.
