My first redfish was caught on Siesta Beach, the year I moved to Florida and broke 30". This year I landed my first over slot snook from my kayak. Became a member of the Black Hat Club in Feb., 2016.

I moved from Colorado to Florida 4 years ago. I went from casting flies to browns and rainbows in mt. streams, to spincasting for spotted seatrout, snook and reds from my kayak. 8000 feet to sea level. Lovin' it all....

– BIO –

Although I have great memories of summers at the beach growing up, I never fished saltwater until moving to Florida in 2012. Preferring artificials over live bait, I continued using my old freshwater lures just to “use them up”. As fishing turned into a passion, the desire for more info and knowledge of fishing saltwater grew stronger. Around  September, 2015 I came across Saltstrong.com and the Simonds brothers… two likeable guys; on a mission, with a passion for fishing and admirable values. I’ve learned a lot from this group and I’m looking forward to being a part of this awesome family of anglers.
