A little about me:
I am a proud Florida native having grown up in the East central part of the state. My fishing roots extend back to a very young age as my parents instilled in me a consequential value for the outdoors early in life. Whether it was wading the shorelines of bass filled ponds, canoeing small rivers and lakes, exploring the Indian River Lagoon system, or short jaunts offshore, I was hardly ever without a rod-in-hand. Weekend outings and mini vacations with my mom and dad, fishing throughout the state, were often and always an adventure. It was an era before GPS and reliable “fish finding” equipment which meant, learning through experimentation, trial and error and situational observation. Those elementary fundamentals were ingrained in me back then and carry over to this day.
