Published by Xlibris
A year before the summer blockbuster Jaws was released in 1975, ABC¡¦s American Sportsman program chartered my boat to promote the movie. Author Peter Benchley also rode along. Benchley was shoulder-to-shoulder with me on the boat for five days. When I saw Jaws for the first time, it was like looking into a mirror. My personality and career had been the basis for the character Quint. Fifty Years a Hooker describes how I got hooked on shark fishing, and in turn, how I hooked my customers¡Xthis also made me a hooker because I was paid for it!
