Sanford the Junk Man

10:47 am EDT, Jun 15, 2014 | By Jim Sexton

Matt Herren has a reputation as a junk fisherman. That's not an insult but an acknowledgement that he likes to use everything in his arsenal. Junk fisherman tend to be target oriented, with lots of rods out on the deck of their boat. So today we're referring to Matt as "Sanford" who was the junk man in the popular 1970s era TV series Sanford and Son. It doesn't hurt that "Santone Lures" is printed big and bold on the side of his boat.

I've also called him an Eagle Scout, which he truly is. Being resourceful is one of the qualities of an Eagle Scout.

Sanford the Eagle Scout just made a move and is fishing deeper water
now.  True to his name he's mixing it up.
