Hi everyone, thanks for letting me hang my hat here. Formerly from Michigan, moved to the Bradenton area about 7 years ago.
I used to fish quite a few tournaments in the past with Great Plains Anglers, Federation, and Red Man, mainly in Michigan, but also traveling to other states. I lost my best friend who was also my fishing partner, six years ago in a m/c crash, which has put somewhat of a damper on my fishing excursions.
I began fishing in Florida around 1980 out of Red's Fish Camp on Toho until 1985, then hadn't fished here again until 2004. Quite a long time in between.
I am enjoying going through the threads picking up a lot of info, and have also posted on a few already.
Again, thanks for having me.
