Hi. I’ve got over 15 years corporate retail experience and have been an avid inshore fisherman on the east central coast all my life. It would be quite the drive from Edgewater, but definitely doable. I’m putting together my resume now as I’ve been out of management a few years.

I do not have tackle experience, but I do have 20 years of restaurant management. I am willing to learn, if you are willing to train. I would give 100%, and be a great asset to your team.

Just received my new Mud- Hole “slot-machine”! Can’t wait to try it out! I would like Justin to recommend a proper reel for it first 🤩

Looks like that Palm Tree needs to go… and a few Florida Natives take its place. Must be getting closer to opening time. That’s exciting…
