Grew up fishing in Pensacola, FL. Commercial fished for approx. 20 years. Received Captains license & began running charters out of Zeke's Marina out of Orange Beach, AL on a 27ft. Pursuit with twin 200 Johnson outboards. Started running charters the next year for a local bait and tackle company and charter business in a 27ft. Island Hopper with a diesel motor. A year later, ran charters for different bait and tackle company on a 26ft. Sea Fox with twin Yahama 150's out of Pensacola Beach Marina. In 2016, purchased a brand new Blazer Bay and ready to go into business for myself. Have fished local waters for 35 years with great success. Here at Sandflea Charters, our motto is: "I got mine, let me help you get yours".
