I started fishing at the tender age of 5. My first catch was a yellowfin croaker off Davey's Locker pier in Newport, CA. The first book I ever purchased was a book on California salt water fish at a book store on Balboa Island. My love for fishing continues, but I've never developed the skill I hoped to. I look forward to learning from the veterans on MeandMyFish to help me better my game and teach me the fine art of sport fishing.
