About the Captain

Member since April 2015
I grew up on Marco Island and spent all my free time fishing the back country near Marco Island and the surrounding 10,000 islands. I am a full time Firefighter and Guide on my days off i spend multiple days a week on the water so i am always familiar with where the fish are and how we are going to catch them.

This was my first guide trip. I have been fishing for sixty years but never with a guide. This was one of the best trips ever. Brad knows his fishing. He knew right where to catch bait and we had 40 bait in one cast. The fishing was a bit slow but we did manage to catch a few. I am planing an other trip in October.

Summer time in South Florida is my personal favorites. Lately we have been relying heavily on our fresh caught bait (pilchards) to get the bite. We have had a lot of smaller sized baits migrate into the area and… Read Full Report →
