Fun, Food, and Family Ties

Pictured are Alex, George, and Doug Cheek, three generations of fishermen. Like many local families, going fishing was something the family always did together. It was a fun activity, provided time together for the family members, and put food on the table—Win-Win-Win!

Doug Cheek fondly remembers fishing with his father George, a tradition he was happy to carry on with his son Alex. He began fishing specifically for Striper (also known as Rockfish, but whose proper name is Striped Bass) around the turn of the century. Then, while he was still working, it was just a hobby. Upon the sale of his Ford dealership in 2018 and subsequent retirement, and seeing a need within the community, Doug decided to start a second business as a Fishing Guide.
