I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!


  • I spent many hours in the 85 degree water. Had a great time seeing the jungle and the amazing animals in the area, take a long swim for me. Enjoy

  • Lots of interesting fish. That houndfish was impressive.

    Eating everything – such a change from our eating habits here. Looking forward to the sea robin episode.

    Safe travels and tight lines!
