Sean Yeckley

Member since April 2018 Wilmington Island, United States
Background
I grew up fishing in the Savannah area and have always been passionate about the ocean, outdoors adventures, and wildlife. I love fishing because you get to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature while waiting for a fish to hit which is a total adrenaline rush. With saltwater fishing, you never know what you could end up catching. This is part of the allure. I have fished my entire life, mostly inshore saltwater but also offshore, freshwater, and fly-fishing. I love to travel and fish new exotic places but the fishing here in Savannah never disappoints.
Techniques
Float and bottom fishing with live or cut bait for spotted seatrout, redfish, flounder, sheapshead, and black drum. Also, fishing cajun thunder popping corks with artificials, live shrimp, or finger mullet.
