West Warwick Rhode Island

In 2010, I embarked on my kayak fishing journey, but it wasn’t until 2015 that I acquired a Hobie Revolution. With the introduction of Hobie’s Mirage Drive technology, my fishing success took a significant leap forward.

Since 2010, I’ve been an active participant in the competitive world of kayak fishing, specifically in the On The Water Striper Cup. Over the years, I consistently secure a spot in the top ten of the kayak division. Additionally, I’ve had the pleasure of achieving notable placements in various tournaments, including the 2022 Coastal Kayak Clash organized by The Fisherman magazine and the 2023 Rhode Island Tog Classic hosted by CraftyOne Customs.

My fishing pursuits extend beyond saltwater species, as I’ve recently delved into freshwater fishing, broadening my angling horizons in the past year.
