Welcome to The Thrifty Whale


Thanks for visiting our website! My name is Jesse Hurd, and I’ve been an avid fisherman and writer for many years. I’m fortunate to live near Upper Chesapeake, where the mouth of the Susquehanna River meets the bay. There are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors here (fishing, hunting, trails, etc.)

The purpose of The Thrifty Whale is to create articles that add value to outdoor enthusiasts across the United States. I’m always learning and exploring new and different aspects of fishing, hunting, and everything I find interesting about nature.
