A Sailor in a Fisherman’s World

There are a lot of fisher(men and women) on Stockton Lake, alongside us sailors and cruisers. What I find to be so cool is that we are so similar. Please allow me to explain. When we go out on the water, we LOVE it. We love the natural beauty. We love to be there with…
