Michael Dawson

Member since September 2017 Holiday, United States
Background
Growing up in Tarpon Springs area, I grew up fishing the waters of the Tampa Bay area. The first fish I ever caught was a 32" Speckled Trout. Ever since then I have been hooked. My fishing career took off in high school when I started a fishing club at Tarpon Springs High School. I then went to USF Where I was the president of the USF fishing club and team. I have done work with TheOnlineFisherman and am the official guide of The Patriotic Angler Podcast.
Techniques
Fishing Changes everyday, This is why there is no preferred style of fishing. As a Captain I also pride myself in asking the client how they want to fish, what they want to target, what do they want to learn. When you book a trip with Patriotic Guide Service, the day is for you, not for us.
