Fishing’s one of my favorite things to do. I love the excitement of being out on the water and not seeing land. I love how big the world is when you get out there and you look around and you see in perspective how small you and your boat are in that water. It’s a thrill, it’s a rush, and it’s something that gives me peace, I love it. Then when you start to fish, I mean it’s truly a game. Depending on what you fish, you have to know exactly how to do it, and how to hit the fish. It’s a sport at the same time, allowing me to compete with the water, and compete with myself. That’s why I love it so much.

3. ‘FIGHT FINISH’ Tattoo


Tattoo: Dak has the words, ‘FIGHT FINISH’ inked on his upper back just close to his shoulders. The words are the source of motivation for him and form the part of those three words ( FAITH, FINISH, and FIGHT ) which were given by his mom to him and his other two brothers. Dak has two words inked on his body whereas the third one that is ‘FAITH’ which Dak often carries in the form of a wrist band on his left hand which has Faith written on it.

Dak, Tad, and Jace were each given a word by Peggy, and they hold those words close, as well as tattooing their names on each other’s bodies. For Jace, it was “Finish.” For Tad, “Fight.” And for Dak, “Faith.”

Those three words were more of what my mom left us for us to continue to live life, with those words, continue to live life being, for Tad, a fighter, for Jace being a finisher, and for me, having faith. But it’s also the things that she always saw in us from the beginning. So, those three words are actually near and dear, but I guess I was fifteen when I got my brothers tattooed on me, on each arm. So that makes them twenty, twenty-one at the time, and we all got it done together for a Christmas present for my mom.
