Member since July 2017 Virginia Beach, United States
Background
I've loved fishing since I was a boy. I moved to Hampton Roads, Va. in the early 80's, became enamored with salt water fishing and bought my first boat. Now, 7 boats later, I really enjoy taking people fishing and seeing them catch their first trophy fish and teaching them the techniques of fishing.
Techniques
On the Southern Belle, we primarily troll whether it be inshore or offshore. Inshore we troll mostly artificial lures, and offshore we use dead baits and artificials with teasers and dredges. We also do deep dropping trips around the Norfolk Canyon for tile fish, grouper, sea bass, etc. We specialize in offshore bluewater fishing, targeting marlin, tuna, wahoo and mahimahi (dolphin). We use the best tackle available - primarily Shimano reels and custom rods.
