I am a young angler from Markham, Ontario. I began fishing at 5 years old when my family went on a trip to Rice Lake and I immediately fell in love with the sport. I fish for small and largemouth bass and panfish. Fishing really took to me when I caught my first Pike in 2010. Over the years I gained more experience as an angler and during the summer of 2012 I really began to take fishing seriously.
I often participate in cleanups and habitat restorations to ensure that the fish have good and healthy habitats which will in turn make my and other anglers fishing experience better. I have a YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter profile which I all use often. I spend a lot of time on fishing forums and websites interacting with other anglers and learning more about the sport.
My favourite species of fish is bass, however I love to fish for other fish almost just as much. I have lots of lake, river and a little bit of Saltwater experience. I enjoy fishing for salmon, trout and many other species of fish in rivers. My saltwater experience is when I fished for flounder and mackerel in Tampa Bay Florida.
My favourite type of fishing is constantly searching for new species of fish to catch. I like to widen my approach and target most species that are often overlooked such as minnows and suckers. Aside from that my favourite is fishing weed beds for big pike, bass, and muskie. My favourite location for fishing is diverse lakes with lots of vegetation and cover.
I like to fish with soft plastics and hard baits like spinners and crankbaits. I love flipping, swimming, and jigging plastics through cover, off the bottom and around rocks and stumps. For hard lures I fish top water over heavy weed mats, and I swim spinners, crankbaits, spoons; and swimbaits over and through lightly weeded areas. I like the action both of these lure types provide and I find that I do my best when fishing with those lures.
