Hometown: Sacramento, California

I was Born in Providence, Rhode Island and was raise in Sacramento CA. And been living here since and fell in love with Kayak Fishing.

Sport of choice in the winter? Summer?

In the winter I love to troll for stripers on the Sacramento Port Deep Water Channel using the Atlas Rig with the mix with that. I fish the salt water during the winter time also targeting ling cod and rock fish. For the summer. Top water bass is my best fishing sports in the summer out at the California Delta.

How did you start in your sport? (What’s your origin story?)

As I Remember when I was a kid. My mom wanted me and my younger brother to stay out of trouble and always find a way to keep us out from it and that was to take us fishing. I fell in love with it until years later when kayak fishing started to come into my life. That’s when my journey begins and kayak fishing the fresh and salt water gave me a whole new LIFE.

What is your favorite Dakota Lithium Product & WHY?

12V 10Ah because I kayak fish and it holds its life battery for a very long time. No need to worry about dying on me. Plus it’s super light weight.
