Who introduced you to fishing?

For me, My Dad took my brother and I fishing at an early age. It took me a while to fall in love with the sport but my brother was hooked day one.

My Uncle Al.... Miss him alot. Every time he'd come for a visit, fishing and crabbing we'd go.

A neihbors Grandfather Mr Blake would take us kids too.

Thank God for putting people like this in our lives.

I'd have to thank my grandfather for getting me hooked on fishing. He used to take me when I was young on his 16 ft aluminum boat which he docked in Seaside Park. Him and I used to make the run in barnegat bay behind IBSP to a place called Johnny Allen's Cove. We used to catch cocktail blues on top water plugs every time . It was like heaven for me. Pop has been gone for 24 years now and I'll never forget those great times we had.

My Grandmother Lena who helped raise us well into our teens . We lived on Key West in a trailer when I was three and we would catch lunch off the seawall my Dad built every day with a cane pole or hand line. With three adults and four of us kids the fish were a blessing from God .The Snappers and Grunts were easy to catch as we threw out all our food waste in the channel off the seawall. I was the only one to take to it right away. I don't know how many times I got my a&& beat for sneaking off to go fishing on my own. We moved when I was four. My Dad got transferred to San Diego . My Grandmother passed when I was 18 . She taught me so much and I miss her. She's probably making turtle shaped pancakes , frying fish , or Baking stuffed Groupers in Heaven.

My dad taught me fresh water fishing at an early age. My Uncle taught me salt water fishing when I was a teen. A friend taught me how to flyfish and tie flies.
