First I wanted to thank everyone that has made this year an encredible year. #FishbumOutfitters , #SeafourLures , and #LiquidMayhem , you guys have helped with putting, well, too many fish to count on the deck of my boat and my friends boats during 2016.
All the people that have come out fishing with me, without you guys I would not have the opportunity to live life to the fullest and do what I love the most.
I want to give a special shout out to a couple people that have contributed to some of my sucesses this season.
First Kevin Gibson, We only met and started fishing together in the spring but I have learned a lot from you and gained a good friend. Some of my favorite times on the water was with you this year, from catching monster Lake trout, and salmon, helping to put the first walleye’s in your boat, to getting skunked on a midnight run in the middle of Lake Ontario, what a blast ha ha ha.
2nd To all my fishing friends and competition in the Bay Of Quinte, you guys have shared your thoughts, given advise, and helped me along the way to get me where I’m at now, I know I have a long way to go but you guy’s give me something to strive for.
3rd To Tony, My Boat Mechanic, thank you for helping to get my boat up and running when several others tried and failed to do what you were able to do.
4th To Scottie Martin and Red Andal, with The Canadian Fishing network, you guys were a blast to fish with and showcasing my fishing stories this year has been giving my stories the exposure I was hoping for, you guy’s rock.
If you want to see the monster walleye that Ed Mackenzie of Chasin Eyes and myself were able to Get Scottie and Red on them click the link below .

5th Last but definitely not least, of course Ed Mackenzie with chasin Eye’s charters, you have been there for me this season like no other. taking people out last minute when I was stuck helping with showcasing both of us with Walleye Wednesdays, and of course endless other gestures trying to help a brother out. I cannot thank you enough for your generousity.
Unfortunatly due to recent sircumstances I had been forced to close my season down early. This, due to some mischievous behavior in the Picton Harbor & resulting in my vessel taking on too much water and almost completely going under. It is unclear exactly what or WHO, happened? Behavior like this, and vandalizing property behind someone’s back is one of the most Cowardly acts a person can do in my opinion.
Your actions have not only cost me money, which Iam SURE was your intention, but you have taken food off the table in our home, and caused my children, family, and the charities we donate to, to go without this christmas.
I do not need you to speak up to say who you are, nor would I expect that based on your cowardess actions , however you should know that your actions create reactions and I’m not sure what my family or children did to deserve the hard times you have and are putting them through.
I apologize to the folks that were looking forward to joining me for those open water trophy Eye’s in the Bay this Fall, but never fear Im sure I will get things sorted out and back on the open water again in 2017.
Ending on a happy note we are all set for the 2017 hard water season and looking forward to having lots of ice and a successful winter season.
Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year
