It’s not just the fish that make a trip epic …

Guest Profile

Steve Robinson is a man of many talents. One of host John Woodson’s first encounters with Steve was on a fishing trip in the Keys. The guy fishing next to John had a heart attack. However, Steve is both a registered trauma nurse and a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. So, he proceeded not only to help save the man’s life, but also coordinated with the Coast Guard to get him rescued. But his talents don’t stop there – pilot, financial advisor, Rotarian, missionary, the list goes on and on. Oh, and did we mention fisherman? In this story, Steve takes his son Chris on a farewell fishing trip before Chris heads off to Naval officer’s candidate school. It’s a trip neither one will ever forget.
