Member since June 2021
I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. I fished the Great South Bay since I was old enough to ride my bike. As a young boy, I worked filleting fish at a local fish market and wholesaler. This put me in the company of fishermen at a young age. I ran my own boat since the age of 15. I was catching Striped Bass, Fluke, Yellowfin, and Bluefin Tuna. I have been vacationing in the Keys each year since I was 11 years old, and each time we came down, I fell in love with the lifestyle and the fishing more and more. I thought the guides who used to take us fishing were the luckiest people on earth. In 2015 I left New York and moved down permanently. I have honed my skills and learned the fishery and the numerous techniques used down here. Come have a memorable day with us and get the same feeling I got all those years ago!

live shrimp, plastic paddletails, or live pilchard will produce plenty of snook ! also nice size mangrove and cubera snapper as bi-catch. A 6 or 8 hour trip will be required due to the run time needed to get to these areas. Also alot of juvenile tarpon willing to hit an artificial early in the morning.
