Growing up fishing on Long Island Sound, my family's and my entire existence was connected to the sea. I was extremely dedicated to the sport and quickly made a name for myself in sport fishing. I attended FGCU when it came time to attend college 6 years ago and never left the area. I have been chartering in the Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel for 6 years.
