I live in South Bend, IN and am always looking for new fishing partners. I have my own 16 ft. pontoon fishing boat with a 40 horse Yamaha on the back and Minn-Kota trolling motor on the front, which I trailer & pull with my van. I like to fish for bass, bluegill, crappie, walleye and about anything else that bites, but my favorite has to be bass.
There is one catch though (no pun intended) Iâ€™ve been a C-4/5 quadriplegic for the past 28 years as a result of falling from a tree at 15. Iâ€™m paralyzed from the shoulders down and fish with an electric fishing reel that I operate with a slide bar on a headrest, someone has to cast out for me but I take over after that. Check out my website: (DansFishinHole.com) for a video segment that our local news station did on me in 1998 and a Fishing with Roland Martin TV show I did in 1984, so you can see how I actually fish. Thereâ€™s been some modifications, but itâ€™s still pretty much the same.
My family and I have taken a two week fishing vacation (usually in June) to a medium sized 150 acre lake in lower MI all my life. This year my main fishing buddy canâ€™t make it, so Iâ€™m looking for someone to go along for that as well. That way my fishing partner & I can fish as much as we want and for what we want.
Please message or email me if youâ€™re interested.
