Joined 7 years ago from Idaho
I live in Boise, Idaho and fish about 100 days out of the year.
I fish quite a bit at my second 'home' on Maui. Crabbing on the Oregon Coast has been one of my favorite trips. In high school, I won state bass fishing tournaments and traveled to Georgia and Arkansas to compete in national tournaments.
When I was 11, I landed a 3 ft. hammerhead from a beach in Hawaii. I also caught a 5 pound octopus (my profile pic) from a kayak. What did I catch the octopus on? Another piece of octopus!
I hope to help other people catch more fish and discover the excitement of fishing. Many think that fishing is throwing a line out on the bottom, then sitting back in an easy chair and hoping something finds the bait. This is not real fishing!
Real fishing is like hunting. You have to actively seek areas where fish are, and every day it may take a different bait to catch them. Some days you have to use fast lures, other days you slowly swim a bait along. That's what makes it so exciting - if you are always finding fish instead of hoping that they find you, it is always dynamic and different and you catch many, many more fish!
Keep those lines tight!
