Background
I have always loved the water and fishing since age 8 and my first kayak prowling the back beaver ponds and lakes of north eastern Ct. in search of large mouth bass. This addiction has grown exponentially with age and now I live for the salt air and hook up with large pelagic species I currently posses a 100 ton masters license with towing
Techniques
I prefer to troll the ships at the moorings with a 7 pole spread at 3 to 4 different depths with a top water teaser, start the day out with a variety of colors and styles until you zero in on what the fish are looking for that day. We will also hit a few good bottom fishing spots during our trip at some favorite structures

The trip created great memories however there wa a little boat troubles like there could be with anything mechanical. The captain did his best to repair and have a good outcome. Overall a good experience and will call him again to go fishing!

Ended up too rough for offshore, so we hit the bay. Able to get into some shallows where others could not go. Fun guy and one I would trust to shoot straight and deal honorably. Good day with a very good man.
