. I was a transplant from Kansas City Missouri to the South Texas Coast from 2006 to 2014. I'm now back closer to home in the St Louis area. My Mom, Brother, Sister, and my Son Nick remain in KC, while my youngest Son John lives in the Phoenix area.

For fun I enjoyed bass fishing at several awesome lakes in South Texas such as Choke Canyon Lake, Falcon Lake, and Coleto Creek Reservoir . Also enjoyed hanging out at the beach just chilling watching the people, wildlife, and sometimes surf fishing. Now I'll be back on my home lakes like Lake of the Ozarks, Truman Resivoir, Pomme de Terre, and Bull Shoals.
