Favorite Bait/Tackle: Soft Plastic Baits

I have been fishing for over 50 years. I live on Long Island NY which is a fishermans paradise. I'm recently retired and I spend a lot of time doing what I love best which is fishing with my family and friends. I have a Scout 187 Sportfish center console boat. You can usually find me out on the water fishing for fluke, stripers, weakfish, black seabass and blue fish. I like to fish with soft plastic baits but I will also use plugs, spoons, jigs and live bait. When I'm not on my boat you can find me at the beach surf casting to stripers and blue fish. In my travels I have fished in Costa Rica, Mexico and the Florida Keys. I have a small condo in Punta Gorda Fl which has become my winter retreat. My wife and I have Hobie Revolution 11 kayaks and we spend a lot of time fishing and exploring the mangrove creeks and flats of Charlotte Harbor. When I'm out on the kayak I fish for snook, redfish, tarpon and sea trout with soft plastic baits. When we are not on the kayaks we will be at the beach. My wife will be soaking up some rays and catching up on her reading while I'm surf casting live bait and artificials for redfish, snook and sharks. I enjoy writing about fishing and I had the honor of being chosen as a WFN Top Ambassador on 6/21/11.
