A passion for fishing and a desire to be on the water has led me to become a captain and a fishing guide. I have been fishing the Venice, Englewood, and Placida waters since my family moved here in 1989. Fishing from shore, piers, and jetties is where i started out. I run a 22' Pathfinder bay boat for inshore and near shore trips. I find enjoyment and satisfaction in teaching others how to fish or putting an experienced angler on fish and seeing the look of excitement when they hook up.
