One of my earliest memories is fishing for Redfish with my dad, we were wade fishing on the flats around Panama City Beach. When I was 12 my dad took me for my first fishing tournament, I won the junior Redfish Division and that was my turning point – I was hooked on catching Redfish for life! Nothing is more exciting than seeing my clients hooked up and I promise to give you my very best to make sure you have the best fishing trip ever!
