I have been an avid angler for 40+ years. After a tour in the US Army and a 30+ year career in the fire service, I embarked on my life dream, to operate my own charter service and have the opportunity to meet folks and share what I live every day. I have spent much of my life introducing others to the sport of fishing, as well as helping them become more knowledgeable on the water. I am USCG licensed and fully insured.
