Most folks who read this magazine live under the delusion that all I do is go fishing all the time. The rest think I’m a captain who travels the world taking other people fishing. Neither could be further form the truth. I do get to spend quite a bit of time on the water, but unless I’m at a Marlin University, when I’m out offshore I’m in journalism mode, trying to get photos or a story. And when I am at Marlin University, I’m trying to teach and coach students, so I get zero rod time on those excursions as well.
