I have been fishing since I could walk. Most of my time on the water is spent chasing snook, tarpon, and reds through the backcountry as well as along the coast. I do enjoy going offshore as well, especially on the east coast going after mahi, tuna, and sailfish. My ultimate goal in life is to quit my job and be able to make a living on the water.

– BIO –

I am a avid fisherman. I grew up Fishing the waters of south west FL, Mostly the waters around Marco Island, Naples, and the 10,000 islands. I spend as much time fishing as I can. I love Catching lunker Snook and Giant Tarpon. Also love fishing for pelagics on the east coast although I dont get to do that as often as I would like. I just  enjoy being out on the water as much as I can weather its fishing with my wife and friends or just crusin out to one of the islands to hang out in the sun for the day. I also like taking less experienced people out the lookin their eyes  when they catch a fish even if its a little snapper is amazing. Introducing people to the joys of fishing is a great feeling.
