I'm a power fishermen and love to be on the trolling motor. If I find something that looks really good I'll stick around and work it. Persistence usually pays off.

History: Being from Long Island I fished saltwater most of my life. Started bass fishing, Club tournaments in 1998 with "Suffolk County Bass Masters.
             I fished for two years from the back of a boat, till i bought my own in 2000.
To me that's when you realize, what you've gotten yourself into. Anyone can cast a line from the back and rely on the boater to put you on fish, but to run your own boat and catch fish is an achievement all it's own.
Transferred with my job at Keystone Automotive on Long Island to Rochester in the winter of 2007...Culture Shock... 7 hours north west of Long Island. Where in 2008 I joined a bass club called Flower City Sportsmen. A group of 25 guys in a team circuit all about Bassin.
Although I knew nothing about fishing these Northern waters, All the guys were willing to teach and in my 3 years with FCS I learned much and enough to compete against these guys and pull out a few wins in the process. Thanks guys!

Favorite Lakes: Oneida, Cayuga, Chautauqua. and Champlain... But you can always find me on Conesus lake some where usually throwing a jig.
