I started commercial fishing my junior year of high school. In the summer of 1985 I got a job working on a charter boat out of Sesuit Harbor in Dennis, MA. That summer I harpooned my first giant bluefin tuna, a 450 pounder below.

I went to college that fall and couldn't shake the fishing from my mind. As it worked out that was my first and final year of college (until I went back to school in 1999).

The following summer, with the help of a close friend I got a spot driving a bluefin tuna harpoon boat.

I worked on that boat for 7 years. We went harpooning in the summer and longlining for cod and haddock in the winter.

I got my own boat, a 44' Novi gillnetter in 1992.

I stayed fishing until the winter of 1999 when I went back to school to become a Certified Webmaster. In 2001 I sold my fishing boat and went to work on the internet full time.

I returned to fishing part time in 2007 and have been longlining and gillnetting for groundfish, harpoon and rod and reel for bluefin tuna. (Like Wicked Tuna only better.)
