I've been fishing and diving Florida waters for over 35 years. After spending many years trolling the Atlantic, I discovered the joys of bottom fishing in the Gulf. The variety of fish and excellent table fare of fishing reefs and wrecks in the Gulf cannot be beat. As an avid spearfisher and diver, I have enjoyed exploring the ocean floor from the Caribbean to the Hawaiian Islands, and have found no better place to fish or dive than our own Gulf waters. It's a lifelong passion of mine so I decided to turn my passion into a career and have enjoyed every minute of it.
