BD: When did you start fishing and who introduced you to the sport?

Courtney Sheridan: I’ve been fishing since I could crawl! Fishing has been a family activity my whole life and a continued passion. My Father was the first one to teach me anything about fishing. I can remember being very young and learning how to bait my hook while bass fishing. Through the years I have acquired many skills from freshwater fishing to offshore fishing.

BD: How would you describe your fishing experience?

Courtney Sheridan: I have fished in many fresh water lakes around Gainesville, Florida for everything from bream to bass. I fish the Indian River Lagoon for our local sea trout, redfish and your occasional catfish; anything to get a line wet. My favorite would be offshore fishing in which I have fished up and down the East Coast of Florida through the Florida Keys. I have also fished the islands of the Bahamas for the elusive bonefish.
