Fishing has been my life since I was a kid. At age thirteen I would spend my days with my older brothers helping and learning fishing techniques aboard local charter boats. Shortly after I became a mate, before finally became a captain in 2010. I have a huge network of fellow captains around the world where we share the latest and greatest fishing techniques. Hop aboard Knotty Hooker Charters for great offshore, deep sea, and bottom fishing adventures!
