Grundéns Presents: The Mate

From the first time Joey Rivenbark saw a boat backing down into its slip as a kid in Morehead City, NC, he knew what we wanted to do: go fishing. From dragging fuel hoses, to shoveling ice, and scrubbing boats, Joey worked every job around the dock before earning his rightful spot as a mate aboard the 54’ Jarrett Bay, Starflite.

Now that Joey has achieved his dream of working on a world-class boat and weighing a fish in the Big Rock fishing tournament, Joey refuses to takes anything that he does for granted. No matter how successful a day on the water is, the boat still needs to be washed, fish need to be cleaned, tackle maintained, and hooks sharpened.

Take a behind the scenes look at a day in the life of a hard-working fishing professional in Grundéns Presents: The Mate.
