“I try to help others become a better fishermen, a better hunter, a better outdoorsman, a better at whatever. If I can help I’m happy to do so but I’d like to help as many people as we can all at the same time.”
I took the time to do a LIVE question and answer podcast for the first time. Using Facebook Live, Instagram Live, emailed questions and tweets, I answer questions for two hours on virtually every subject. From Goliath grouper regulations, to how to become a fishing guide, Capt. License questions, or how to stay in shape on the road, the questions keep flooding in and I try my best to answer them all.
Thank you to all the fans and friends who participated in this live event.
