When did you start fishing?
“I was about eight years old when I started spending my summers with my grandma. We went fishing every Monday through Friday for three months. She had access to around 50 private ponds. Before each trip, I got to choose if we fished for bass, catfish, crappie or bream. I usually chose crappie. It was my job to have everything ready for the next morning. I cleaned fish each day and buried the remains in the garden for fertilizer.”
