I've been fishing since I was kid and being on the water feels like second home. I've started chartering 16 years ago, but I've been an avid angler for over two decades. Today, I love to share my skills and experiences with other people by taking them fishing myself. I also love participating in tournaments and have over the years had a lot of success competing. Nowadays, I enjoy taking people out on trips and helping them fall in love with fishing and Cancun.
