He has over 45 years of total fishing experience with 10 years of experience being in California, and is an expert on the Potomac River River and Upper Bay. He fished local tournaments in Delaware and Maryland and on the Redman Trail before it became the BFL, (part of the FLW tour), until 2005.
He competed in and won the Delaware State Sportfishing Tournament multiple times and registered two species that were just a few ounces shy of the state record, one of which was a largemouth bass caught in 1999 and registered in the Bassmaster Lunker Club at 10.16 pounds, just 5 ounces off the Delaware State Record. This bass also appeared in a feature article by the "News Journal" (Gannett Publications), and in all of Bass Pro Shops and Redhead Master catalogs for 2003.
He has worked with Operation Bass in assisting with Red Man Tournaments before they were the BFL, and competed in and won, several different tournaments both local, regional, and national.

He was profiled for fishing achievements in the "News Journal," and by the "Middletown Transcript" in 2001. He is also a contributor the the "N.A.F.C." series of hardback books, and is currently in the process of publishing his own book, "Bass Fishing The Northeast". He produced bass fishing videos featuring the Potomac and Sassafras rivers.
He was interviewed for an article on "Fishing Opportunites in Delaware" by Delaware Today magazine, which appeared in the May 2006 issue. Steve was inducted into the N.A.F.C. "Hall of Fame" in June 2003, and was a regular guest and host on radio talk shows including Alex Langers, "Outdoors This Week", and produced and appeared on his own radio show for many years called "Beyond Bass Basics" on Anglers Radio.

I have been the Team Captain of the the Jackson Bass Anglers three times from 1997-2002, which is a New Jersey Federated club. I have been deeply involved in the "Take A Kid Fishing" programs working with underprivileged youths and with the Boys Scouts. I love taking kids fishing and watching them catch their first fish. I always make time for kids regardless of my tournament schedule, as they are the future of our sport. I started my nephew Vinnie fishing when he was 12 years old, and today he is my partner in most of the tournaments and he has been hooked ever since that first day. I am very motivated and outgoing and will be doing seminars this year for THE BASS COLLEGE and at our local sporting goods dealer in new Jersey, The Sportsman Center. In the past I have worked with their customers assisting with the acquisition of all the current products that are necessary for the tournament anglers and weekend fisherman in the area. I have even assisted other anglers with local hot spots and have taken them out to local areas at no charge. I will be promoting all the products and sponsors this year through my articles on local areas and reports here at this site and at all the tournaments and in our new instructional videos filmed on the Potomac river, Upper Bay, and local lakes and ponds throughout New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware.
I also appeared on ESPN radio and several other shows in 2012.
