William Wirt

My name is William Wirt, my friends call me Sarge. I have been fishing for most of my life, mostly in northern California, primarily from the banks of Lake Mendocino, Lake Sonoma, Clearlake and the East Fork of the Russian River. I started fishing from a kayak in 2011 after I came home from Afghanistan and I was hooked right away. I joined the Nor Cal Kayak Anglers (NCKA) in 2013 and started ocean fishing for Lingcod and Rock fish. Lately I have been working on chasing largemouth and smallmouth bass, but I still manage to get out on the salt water a few times a year.

I retired from the military after serving over 25 years, the first 4 in Marine Corps. The last 21 years I served in the California Army National Guard as a Combat Engineer.
