From the Captain:

As a child, I have fond memories of my dad taking me on fishing and hunting trips, where I learned about the importance of nature conservation and the thrill of the chase. These experiences sparked my curiosity and instilled in me a deep appreciation for the great outdoors. Over time, I became more skilled and knowledgeable about fishing and hunting, and I developed a passion for these activities that has stayed with me throughout my life. Today, I continue to enjoy fishing and hunting as a way to connect with nature and to bond with my family and friends.


While I've fished in many different locations over the years, trolling on the open waters of Lake Ontario, Lake Cayuga, Hudson River, and Mexico Bay remains some of my most memorable and enjoyable experiences. There's something special about being out on the water, surrounded by natural beauty, and waiting for the excitement of the catch. I am grateful to my dad for introducing me to fishing and hunting at such an early age, as it has given me a lifelong passion that I hope to pass down to future generations. Whether it's trolling on Lake Ontario or casting in a small stream, fishing and hunting are not just hobbies to me, they are a way of life.
