Guest Profile

Roger Bouwmans works for Siemens Energy in Orlando, Florida and loves to get on the water every chance he can get. Whether on the lake or driving across the Gulf Stream from Florida to the Bahamas and back, Roger loves a great adventure and catching lots of fish. And that is exactly what he does in this epic blackfin tuna fishing adventure …

Fishing experience

Roger is an all around angler who fishes for most every fish Florida has to offer. These include largemouth bass, inshore saltwater species such as redfish (red drum) and spotted seatrout, and all varieties of offshore saltwater fish. In this episode, Roger was put to the test and had a serious case of sore arms by the time day was over!
