My name is Justin Scharaldi and I am 11 years old. I have had a passion for water sports my whole life. I was first on the water at 6 days old on my parent’s boat. Ever since then I enjoy kayaking, fishing, and boating. I spend a lot of time on the water with my family and friends. I have fished in many places throughout my life. I love the combination of fishing and kayaking. Some of the places I have gone fishing are Tarpon Springs and the Keys in Florida, the Delaware RIver in Pennsylvania, New Jersey’s Raritan Bay, Manahawkin Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. I also went kayaking and camping at Assateague Island in Maryland. I even spent my birthday kayak fishing in New York on Lake Durant in the Adirondacks. Some types of fish I've caught include striped bass, bluefish, jackfish, and winter/summer flounder. I have had my own kayak since I was 7 years old. Last year I upgraded to a fishing kayak and added many different parts on to help me to fish throughout the season for different types of fish.
