  1. To be on a guided destination Saltwater trip for Jacks and marlin this spring

Specific: Educating anglers on Different fishery’s, equipment uses and guiding tips and techniques on my platform.
Measurable: To know this is achieved by when anglers download the new show guided, gather feedback from listeners.
