My great-grandfather was in the fishing business as was my grandfather for years. I grew up along the coast and fished a lot as I was growing up. Once I finished my education, I decided to carry on the legacy and started working in the Chandeleur Islands fishing business and continued to do so for 15 years. I decided to go out on my own into inshore and offshore fishing charters in 1999 and have continued to do so ever since. I enjoy the everyday relaxation of being out on the water and meeting people from all over the world. It’s a very entertaining and enjoyable way of life.
