We spent the morning at the Violet locks, and he told us he's studying to be a fish guide because of his passion to be on the water.

"I fish a lot. I'm in Houston Marine right now working on my 100 ton license," Poppa said.

On this morning, DJ Poppa was also number one with the prettiest red fish of the day!
