Highlight Reel


I live in Michigan on the edge of metro Detroit. I grew up on a bass lake called Lakeville lake. I used to ice fish a lot, but nowadays I go ...more up north river fishing and twice a year pier and surf fishing in the Sarasota area of Florida. Mangrove fishing when I have extra money which is never.
