For the person who thinks the action is over when they receive the gold watch and are sent home with a box full of personal items so they can now head out to the pasture and become irrelevant, Captain Bouncer Smith, I’m Not Done Yet portrays a new way of handling this phase of life. Retirement should be anything but a Tuesday night bridge game and Thursday morning shuffleboard. Retirement is an opportunity to continue checking those boxes on that old bucket list.

He traveled to the Carolina Banks and Murrells inlet, Lake Lanier, far offshore in the Florida Keys, the Everglades, and many other destinations. He has caught striped bass in Georgia’s Lake Lanier, and blue fin tuna 100 miles off the North Carolina coast. He had never caught, or seen caught a barrel fish, so the famous Captain Nick Stanczyk took him thirty miles offshore of Islamorada in the Florida Keys and they filled up the fish box.

His enthusiasm for fishing continues to burn white hot, or as he says, I’m not done yet!
