I've been running my own boats and fishing trips since 1988 when I purchased my first boat. In 2009 we purchased our current boat, a 2001 Grady White 300 Marlin. I recieved my USCG Credentials in 2015 and am now living my dream of being a full time captain. For 45 years I've been absolutely nuts about fishing and everything outdoors. I've evolved however and my satisfactions now come from seeing others enjoy what I've enjoyed for so long. I have fished the far reaches of the Golden Gate coast to the upper Sacramento river and everywhere in between. My wife Sonya has been by my side for the past 29 years and she is a key component to my success and the success of Here We Go Sport Fishing. ​
