I Help People Spend More Time Fishing & Learn Along The Way

I caught my first fish (a yellowtail) with my Grandpa behind his house in the Florida Keys.  I've been hooked ever since, learning what I can from any mentor who will take me on as an apprentice.  I love to learn new things and with fishing there is a never ending possibility of learning.

I've been truly lucky to have some great fishing mentors, to be able to travel to fish, to be part of great fishing teams, to fish some great fishing tournaments, to work in fisheries research, and to be able to help so many anglers spend more time fishing through Bullbuster.   

I hope that you enjoy my personal blog within the Bullbuster Community as much as I enjoy working on it.
