Jim’s boating career started as a 14 year local kid on the Manasquan River. He has owned more than 20 boats and has traveled by boat as far north as Newport, Rhode Island and south to Florida’s West Coast. Jim has wintered as a “live aboard” in Florida for 10 of the last 12 years and fished the flats there in a restored Pro-line “fallback”. He comes to Clarks from a career in Sales and Marketing for national companies and as an owner of his own marketing firm for 35 years. Jim likes to say he is “back to his roots” across the river from the Manasquan River Yacht Club where it all started.
