Chip has been fishing and hunting his entire life. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, he set his sights on coaching Track and Field at the NCAA Division 1 level.
While coaching has taken him all over the US, for the last 5 years it has brought him to Jacksonville, FL. Chip fishes the surf from Daytona to Brunswick, GA and targets many species from redfish, pompano, whiting, black drum and trout to the occasional shark. He joined the Florida Surf Casters club and was lucky to meet several local anglers that have become his closest friends.
Chip has devoted a lot of his time learning the local area fishing holes and run outs on the beach. Chip is always excited to share his passion and knowledge of fishing and that’s why he created “The Sinker Guy.” Through this platform and his now famous products, Chip is able to offer something that no other Sinker Guy can: quality, durable, effective products from a trusted fisherman (himself.) You can find Fishbites bait, Bruno rigs, the famous Sputnik Sinker and much more on the Sinker Guy’s website. He takes pride in making sure that every customer is satisfied with the service and products received. Even better, The Sinker Guy Sputnik Sinker is handmade in the USA by Chip himself when he’s not on the water fishing!
