 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
I have been into Bass Fishing since 1985. I currently run a 2003 Triton TR21 bass boat with 225 HP Mercury optiMax engine, and I fish as much as possible. Since retirement the second time in 1994 I have fished from Texas to Maine to South Florida and many places in between.

My other interest is in raising our grand daughter. She came to live with us in 2001 at 6 years old due to the passing of her Mom. She is now 15, a Sophmore in high school and learning to drive. Great fun.
