My earliest memories are fishing ponds at a friend of the family’s house whenever we went over there. From then on I grew up fishing a lake across the street from my house as a kid catching Pickerel, Bass and Catfish. I’d spend my summers in FL with my grand parents getting up a 5am every morning to fish the salt flats with my grandfather for Trout and Snook. As I got older, I still fished occasionally but not as much.
It wasn’t until I moved with minutes from back bays, bridges and surf fishing, that I became dedicated to fishing again. After a few year of shore and boat fishing, I bought my Hobie Pro Angler and I found what my type of fishing I was truly passionate about. I’ve dedicated 100’s of hours and miles learning the skills of fishing from a kayak in the back bays, rivers and ocean. Everyday is a new lesson learned and experience remembered.
