I grew up working on every kind of fishing boat you can imagine. My love for the Gulf of Mexico always kept me coming back, so I eventually made the decision to start my own business here in St Pete! I love everything that comes along with fishing, from seeing the sun come up early in the morning, to watching clients land that giant they've been dreaming about. I will work harder than anyone to help you have the trip of a lifetime! Book your trip now! You won't regret it!

Fishing in St Pete in the fall is truly outstanding! You never know what you are going to run into! Big redfish, feeding snook, hungry grouper, epic snapper, take your pick! We are coming up on one of my favorite times of year too which is the winter time sheepshead fishing! If you're thinking about booking a trip over the holidays, or any time over the next few months this is a really fun time to go fishing!
