Figured I'd jump in on this. I'm 39 and have been fishing basically since I could walk. Was an offshore charter captain for a while but the grind wore me down. I've held my USCG OUPV ticket for 15 years. Primarily offshore fishing but I really, love it all.
Planning is coming together! Just waiting to hear back from a couple outfitters to see what their availability is for this year, if any, and I'll be booking my first African hunt. Fingers crossed I can get one slotted for late August/first couple weeks of September.
