Area Reporting: Smith River, California Based Fishing Trips

Bio: It all started when I was four years old, my first fishing trip was to Puddingstone Dam in So California. I can still remember putting that red-worm on my hook, casting it out and waiting for my bobber to get pulled under. It Did!! And I have been hooked ever since. It didn't matter where I fished, what I fished for as long as I was fishing. since that day, my fishing trips have ranged from the deep Mexico chasing Marlin, Sailfish, Giant Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo to Alaska in search of world class King and Silver Salmon fishing to the Snake River in Idaho for 10 ft. Sturgeon to Hawaii looking for that monster Blue Marlin. Still to this day I have to take two fishing vacations a year. It's a sickness!!
