I am, originally from New York, began fishing at age six with his grandfather for flounder. "My grandfather taught me everything he knew. I owe it all to him". As I grew my interests in other fish grew as well. I fished the north for bluefish, striper, sharks, and tuna. I got my first boat at 17 -- an 18ft Bowrider. Throughout my life, I fished both the northern and southern parts of the eastern coast; Atlantic Beach to Montauk. I have also traveled to Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Aruba, Hawaii and the Bahamas to fish as well. At age 19, I began traveling to Florida for fishing excursions. Each and every year I would take at least one trip to Florida, including the Keys. I also took an interest in fly-fishing around the same time I got my first boat. At age 33, I decided to make Florida my permanent home where I now fish 2-3 times a week. I currently write the Palm Beach/Jupiter fishing report for and live in North Palm Beach. I am also an active member of the West Palm Beach Fishing Club.
