– BIO –

Hey everyone, I’m Jeff Birdwell, a 56 year old Florida Cracker who loves the outdoors.  I fish as much as possible and bow hunt when the opportunity arises.  I have always fished for as long as I can remember; mostly freshwater and inshore, but I hope to try some offshore adventures soon.

I just retired after 30 years in law enforcement, with the past decade as a Detective/Sergeant in homicide.  I was on call 24/7 during that time, missing every holiday and family event that exists.  I’ve seen more deaths and sadness than any person should.  However, now I’m beyond thrilled not to sleep with two cellphones and handling dead investigations anymore.  I hoping to fill my old soul with fishing tales and laughter for the remaining of my days.  Or until momma makes me get another dang job.

I have an awesome family, a few great friends, and the desire to make some more.  Let’s go fishing!!!
