More about Me: I fine-tuned my carping skills fishing the New York City watershed reservoirs in Westchester County NY where I grew up. I can often be found fishing with the original tri-state “boys” Val Grimley, Miguel Angelo, and longtime fishing partner & friend Ed Wagner. I really enjoy pleasure fishing, specimen hunting, and the occasional tournament. Favorite venues include northeast tidal rivers & lakes. Nothing fancy – good baits and simple rigs catch fish! Favorite baits are tiger nuts and the notorious fish catching PB Crayfish boilies…!
