I grew up fishing since I could walk. It’s always been my passion because the feeling of that catch brings a joy that’s one of a kind. I enjoy the outdoors and fish almost 7 days a week whether it’s working or for fun. I grew up in the Galveston area and have been jetty and bay fishing here quite a while now. I decided to follow my passion and become a captain in 2020 and start chasing my dream as a charter guide. My goal is to share the beautiful outdoors with everyone and make a memory of fishing with you.
