BD: What are some future goals or plans pertaining to fishing?
Amber Miller: I would really love to catch a cow!! They have been catching bluefin up to 200-pounds too and that would work.
BD: What part of fishing do you like the most?
Amber Miller: My favorite part of fishing has to be catching bigger fish each time and the competitor in me wants to catch the biggest fish of the day and I have quite a few times!
BD: List some of your proudest moments in fishing?
Amber Miller: One highlight was a night of hoopnetting lobsters. I dropped and pulled all ten pots that trip and we got 62 bugs! Catching my first yellowtail, yellowfin and that big bluefin were all highlights too.
