On the Big Lake Okeechobee with my friend Mike and his wife Mariam. Mike has fished with me allot over the years and is in the Marine Corps for a long time. My good friend is on his way back to Afghanistan.

It is always a honor to fish with Mike, he is a true American hero and a great roll model for young & old Americans.
Mike is one of few and proud Americans that protect this great country.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
