Member since October 2018
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, my two hobbies growing up were baseball and fishing. As I grew older, I realized that fishing is my real passion. After many years of learning and perfecting my skills, I decided to share it with other anglers and became a licensed captain. I enjoy all types of fishing, especially the challenge of catching with artificial lures, which has become my niche. I partnered with Monster3x Concept Fishing Lures and introduced the brand to the U.S. I offer fishing seminars on how to fish with Monster3x artificial lures throughout Florida and the Caribbean. Fishing is my passion and my love for the ocean is what keeps me energized and excited to live each day of my life.
