Hello World! My name is Billy and this is my first post in my first blog.
About me: I am a 35 year old father of 2 that has been married for 10 years to my wonderful wife Jill. I spend 50-60 very stressful hours a week running a car dealership, and most of my free time trying to be a good daddy and husband. With the time I have left over (which isn’t much) I focus on my passion which is finding new places to catch, photo, and release fish that I haven’t ever caught before. I have a few other hobbies like my motorcycle, tattoos, and a classic car, but fishing trumps them all.
about this blog: My motivation for starting this blog was after a recent fishing trip to falls of the Ohio state park where I caught 3 fish in one day that I have never caught before. I came up with the term bucket list fish. Since there are thousands of species that I will probably never catch I will consider anything that I haven’t caught before, or if I catch a larger version of something that I have caught before a bucket list fish.
I have been fishing for about 30 years (man do I feel old), everywhere from the Metedeconk river that I grew up on, inshore, offshore, inlets, jetties, bays, streams and private ponds to Florida flats, backwater, the Gulf of Mexico, Cayman islands, BWI, Turks and Caicos and Puerto Rico. I love to kayak fish, hand fish, spin cast, baitcast, wade, float, and surf fish, and now fly fish.
I am very excited about sharing my fishing adventures, advice, and mishaps with anyone who wants to listen or read. I plan to do so on this site 2-3 times every week.
Tight Lines and Tailwinds! -Billy
