Fort Lauderdale, United States

Background
I am a second generation charter fishing guide. I was also born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, which gives me a little bit of an advantage over a few of the other guys. I became a Fisherman because it is something I find that I love doing. No matter what type of fishing I'm doing, I love it. With that being said, who wouldn't want to do what they love everyday and get paid for it? Seemed like a simple choice to me.
Techniques
I like to do a fair amount of trolling. Though, nothing beats hanging 4 live baits out of two kites. It's something about watching the fish attack your bait that gets your blood pumping every time.
