Growing up in South Florida, Melissa learned how to fish at age six and has been on the water ever since. Throughout the years she has mastered trolling offshore, lobstering, vertical jigging, and spearfishing. Melissa has competed in several fishing tournaments throughout Florida, Mexico, and the Bahamas.
When did you first get involved with Salt Life? I have been living the Salt Life my entire life, and officially joined Team Salt Life in 2019!
What is your favorite sea creature? Why? My favorite sea creature is the dolphin. I was once snorkeling in the Bahamas when a pod of about 30 dolphins swam up to me, there are no words to describe the connection that is made when surrounded by these amazing animals!...
What is your favorite category in the Salt Life line? My favorite category in the Salt Life line would have to be the sunglasses. There are so many awesome styles to choose from and they are all so comfortable, not to mention they all come polarized which is perfect when offshore!
Is there something on your bucket list that you’d like to accomplish? A bucket list item for me would be to travel to Costa Rica and catch a Roosterfish. These beautiful fish are found in warmer waters in the Eastern Pacific, and can grow to be 75 lbs! I can’t wait for the opportunity to fight one of these fish.
