John Painter grew up fishing the beautiful mountain lakes and streams of Charleston, West Virginia. In his youth, he began visiting coastal Carolina where the draw of ocean and saltwater fishing took hold. So much so, that in 1982 he moved to North Carolina and made a total commitment to the boating life with a career as a new and brokerage boat salesman in the Morehead City area.
