As far as Fishing goes, my long-term goals would be to stay competitive on the tournament side as long as possible. I love the competition and going to new places. I like the new people I meet along the way. I am always learning when it comes to fishing , and enjoy the new challenges and new techniques as they arise. I just love to fish!
