I love fishing! The water has always been my playground. One of my earliest memories is sitting atop my grandfather’s lap steering his 36 foot sportfishing boat off the Jersey shore. Two years later, at the age of 6, I was allowed to take the family 13 foot Boston Whaler out by myself to catch Striped Bass and Bluefish on Pleasant Bay in Orleans. I soon expanded my horizons to the Atlantic waters and diverse fishing off Monomoy Island and beyond.
In the decades since, I have long lined tuna and swords off North Carolina, chased Roosters, Mahi and Marlin along the Pacific coast of Central America, sustenance gillnetted with native Hawaiians, helped develop the fishing program at Tavarua Surf Camp in Fiji, spear fished the reefs of Indonesia, dove the great barrier reef of Australia, and chased the perfect wave in the most remote corners of the globe.
Yet every spring I return to Cape Cod, drawn by the incredible fishing opportunities of my home waters. Many seasons of commercial fishing for Striped Bass and Bluefin Tuna and a passionate pursuit of recreational light tackle angling have given me a huge advantage in locating and catching trophy size fish.
