Tell me about yourself.
Ted started fishing when he was 3 years old with his grandfather who instilled in him a love for nature and outdoor pursuits. Ted started kayaking when he was 12 and purchased his first pedal drive kayak in 2018. Ted is a big-time environmentalist & studied environmental engineering in college. Ted enjoys both fresh water and saltwater fishing – his favorite freshwater fish to catch is a Largemouth Bass and his favorite saltwater fish to catch would be either Striped Bass or Hickory Shad. Ted’s must have accessories for his Hobie Kayak are; a Hobie Trax 2 Kayak Cart (to get him from point A to point B), a Hobie Vantage seat accessory bag (to hold all of his emergency repair kits), a YakAttack Blackpak Pro 13x16 (to store all of his tackle, drinks and snacks (aka his Sour Patch Kids) and a YakAttack Boomstick Pro to enable him to mount his GoPro for unrivaled angles and stability.

If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick three things to bring with you, what would they be?
If Ted were stuck on a deserted island he would want 15,000 gallons of apple juice, apple seeds and a juicer.
What would you consider as your “best day of summer”?
Ted’s best day of summer is one that starts with fishing from 3am to 8am, walking his dog, Kai in the Oswegatchie Hills Nature Preserve, dinner with his family and a nice bonfire.
