Captain Jack's fishing journey began in childhood, with days spent casting lines into the river behind his house. This passion took a significant turn in 1992 when he moved to northern lower Michigan. It was here, amidst the vast expanse of Lake Michigan and its connected water bodies, that his love for bass fishing deepened.

He developed a particular affinity for finesse fishing techniques, often using spinning gear combined with light lines. This approach allowed him to refine his skills in subtle and precise fishing methods. Whether it was presenting a lure with just the right touch to attract elusive bass or mastering the art of finesse retrieves, he embraced the effectiveness of this style. This technique has proven its worth, bringing remarkable success and joy in his bass fishing adventures across the clear waters of Lake Michigan and its surrounding areas in northern lower Michigan.
