About Me

My name is Lalo Ojeda. Born and raised in San Antonio Texas where we are blessed to have Twin Lake, Brauniq and Calaveras who both have Freshwater Redfish. This is un-heard of for most people but its true. To me fishing is a way of life and with out and the people I community myself with, Life would be tough. I started fishing as a young boy with my grandfather at these lakes and to this day 23 years later I still have the privilege to fish with him. Because of him I spend my every last cent of new fishing gear and I love it, but freshwater fishing is just the beginning. Just like I will fish every creek, river lake and pond, I make my way down south and fish every saltwater hole, jetty, peir and miles of surf I can run my ford on. Hope to fish with some ambassadors in the future. Tight Lines everyone.
