I was born in Orlando, Fl raised on southern hospitality with a Floridian mentality, work hard-play hard and respect nature. There was not one person in my family that did not know how to work on a car or how to bait their own hook and my family taught me just those things growing up.
It all started when I was about five years old. My Grandfather started taking me speck fishing with him on Lake Jessup during the weekends while my father was at work. It was an indescribable feeling when I felt that fish on the end of my line for the first time, I knew right then and there I was hooked on fishing forever. My grandfather must have seen it in my eyes because he never missed a chance to take me on another fishing trip after that! To this day that’s all we ever talk about is fishing when I see him and how I can’t wait to share those same memorable experiences with my children.
