I have been a fisherman my entire life. I learned my skills from my grandfather. I especially enjoy fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, and Tuna. I recently got the opportunity to expand my interests and skills for a charter business in Costa Rica. My captain and first mate are masters with outstanding reputations who share my passion for fishing.
