Hometown: North Port, Florida
I have been kayak fishing for over 20 years. I love being able to fish waters that are sometimes unfishable by boat. I fish fresh and salt for everything from Bass to Tarpon from my kayak. My most memorable fish would have to be a 140 pound Tarpon that I caught just off the beach in Sarasota Florida.
I live in Florida which affords me the ability to fish year around.
I compete in tournament series regularly with KBF
Native Watercraft tournaments
and also fish numerous local tournaments.
I have first and second place finishes in the IFA
Numerous first place finishes in local tournaments
and regularly get top 10 finishes.
I started in Illinois fishing from a Coleman canoe and changed over to kayaks when sit on top kayaks were introduced. The SOT made it much safer with the scupper plug design allowing the kayaks to drain water rather than sink like the canoes.
