my brother, capt. gregg, on animal planet

My brother Gregg has been a charter fisherman for about 20 years now. First in Key West, Fl., then Vieques, Puerto Rico, and now in Matlacha, Fl. He's good at it. VERY GOOD. Like most things that he finds interesting, he's all in. He has dedicated his sponge-like mind to knowing as much as possible about his craft and gets his clients on the fish. His business, WildFly Charters, has excelled in all three locations.

The new show on Animal Planet, Off the Hook, features this professional wrestler that figures out strange ways to risk his neck while catching fish. The latest episode has this guy catching sharks from while standing on a paddle board. My brother appears for about 10 seconds in the interview portion while they all are considering the absurdity of the fishing that is about to take place. They're hangin' at Bert's Bar, a "must experience" for anyone driving through or vacationing in the area.

They also used his boat to haul the camera crew while filming the episode.

You don't get to pick your family. You're stuck with them throughout this life. Having a brother like Gregg has always made my life much more interesting. I'm very lucky. VERY. I hope I am able to blog more about his future success. Good people deserve good things happening to them and he's one of the good ones.
