Ryan Schramm started fishing at a very young age, fishing the lakes and ponds of new england. At age 18 Ryan moved to LBI. After about 2 seasons of watching the locals catch trophy striped bass he landed his own. From that day forward he's been hooked. Whether fishing in the white water of LEI for stripers, standing on the beach with a rod, or headed to the continental shelf in search of pelagics, Ryan is always thinking of different strategies to land more fish. In the winters Ryan heads south to Florida and fishes the gulf for about a month searching for snook, grouper,king and spanish makerel. Ryan also fishes in Costa Rica during January and February for rooster fish, tuna and any other species he can find. Big or small, it doesn't matter, you will always find Ryan looking for a fish to catch.

Matt Orloff just became highly addicted to fishing about 5 years ago when he moved to Lake Mary, Florida. He fishes anywhere he can put a line in (which is almost anywhere in Florida). Matt mainly fishes in-shore for Redfish, sea trout, sheepshead, and flounder. Matt also goes out off-shore whenever he gets the opportunity. He fishes for cobia, sailfish, kings, grouper, red snapper (but have to throw the reds back), triple tail, sharks, mahi mahi, and whatever else bites. If Matt can't get over to the coast he'll hit up one of the many lakes around. He loves getting his kids and wife to go to teach them all about the sport, and being out with them in nature.
