My name is Marc Vertin I am relatively new to the Evansville area having moved here approximately 3 years ago from Ventura California. I am an avid freshwater fisherman mainly experience in trout fishing. But also have fished bass, crappie and bluegill but still a novice in this area. I truly love fishing would very much like to be a member of your organization although I have much to learn about bass fishing. I am a retired mortgage broker having run my own business in California for over 22 years. I have been married for 33 years to the same lovely woman and have four children and 10 grandchildren. I currently do independent contracting for the Evansville Courier and Press and work approximately 20 hours a week. I live in Evansville on the Eastside at the Lakeshore Apartments. One of my daughters and her son live in Newburgh and the rest of my children reside in California. I have fallen in love with the Evansville area and in the state of Indiana the people are fantastic and the slower pace of life fits me and my wife well. I do not own a boat and I hope this does not represent a problem for membership in your organization.
