Home waters: The Salty Side of Connecticut

Shawn Barham catches striped bass, tons of them, big ones. He credits his father for starting him early, as a baby. Fishing has always been his consuming passion. He’ll fish for just about anything. “I love how my Hobie brings me up close and personal with the fish. I am addicted to setting the hook and then being towed around by a big fish. There’s no better rush,” he says.
