I have been fishing for the past 40 years, and began kayak fishing about six years ago. I am an avid fisherman, spending most of my spare time on the water. My main focus are the bodies of water in Northwest Pennsylvania, but I also travel to neighboring states on a regular basis, mostly in the eastern Ohio and western New York areas. My two passions are panfish and bass, although I also dabble in walleye, and occasional salt water fishing when I can get there (striper, redfish, flounder, trout). I participate in local kayak fishing tournaments on a regular basis, with my highest finishes thus far being a second and third. In addition to open water fishing in a kayak or bass boat, I also ice fish during winter months to keep my skills honed.
