I've been fishing for my entire life (since the age of 4) for most freshwater species as well as quite a few salt water fish such as Stripers, Bluefish, Cod, Yellow Fin and Albacore Tuna on both Cape Cod (Atlantic Ocean) and from San Diego to the Coronado Islands off the coast of Mexico (Pacific Ocean). I grew up fishing for Trout, Perch, Pike and Bass on Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and have fished all of the Finger Lakes for many years as well as Lake Ontario - fishing mainly from Sodus Point, Oak Orchard and Point Breeze for trout and salmon. I fish year round (retired) and ice fish as well on the Finger Lakes for Perch, Walleyes, Crappies/Gills, Landlocks and various trout species - primarily with my son as my long time fishing partner. These days I enjoy sharing ideas, tactics, strategies and specific informational knowledge with my fellow fishermen. May all of you have tight lines!
