Growing up in New Jersey, my father taught me how to fish since the day I could walk. We would go to the shore all summer long and fish for flounder, blue fish, weakfish or anything else that would take a minnow or a piece of squid. As I got older, I found freshwater fishing and I have been hooked ever since. Freshwater bass fishing is now my passion and my obsession. I get out on the water over 100+ days a year.
I am currently the President of the South Jersey Kayak Bass Fishing Club. SJKBFC conducts a tournament schedule throughout South Jersey concluding with a two day Kayak Bass Fishing Classic. The club continues to grow every year and now consists of 30+ members from all walks of life, all with a common thread, the love of kayak bass fishing. The club’s Facebook page has over 280 likes and promotes kayak angling, club news, fishing tips, kayak angling gear and accessories. We are also active on Twitter, Instagram and our newly redesigned website, SJKBFC.com, keeps all members and friends informed of all the happenings of the club and its sponsors. SJKBFC does not only fish tournaments, but we work on lake clean-ups, habitat enhancements and we often volunteer at local kids fishing derbies and other community activities and events.
Since 2010 I have fished in over 100 kayak bass tournaments and I have won over 20 times. I have also been fortunate enough to have won the Angler of the Year title 7 times! Besides competing in local tournaments in NJ I also enjoy competing in national tournaments such as the Kayak Bass Series, Kayak for a Cure and Hero on the Water Events. These events have taken me across the country and I have met some great anglers from all over. I also currently belong to two boat clubs:
South Jersey Hook This! and Lunker Hunters of PA & NJ.
One of my favorite things is to when I’m not on the water is to promote Bass Fishing by attending various fishing events and talking to people about the sport. I love to attend and work trade shows, fishing flea markets and seminars. I have participated in two Bass University courses and I have watched and learned from some of the best anglers in the world. I have spent time in the boat with Mike Iaconelli, Skeet Reese, Byron Velvick and Boyd Duckett.
