Member since March 2019
I am a 24 year Coast Guard veteran. I started charter fishing in Pensacola, FL in 1993. I was transferred to Louisiana back in 2002 and it’s grown on me like mold on bread. Since then, I’ve never looked back! I opened Wicked Fishing Charters Mandeville back in 2015 and been having the time of my life since.
