Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I grew up in the Ocean City, Maryland area and have been involved in the sportfishing charter industry as well as the private boat tournament circuit my whole adult life. After being blessed with the opportunity to travel the world competing at a high level of sportfishing, I am again blessed with the chance to take families fishing in my home Ocean City waters. I get to show them the wonderful world of our local waters, especially our young anglers. Family-friendly, as well as adult outings, can be arranged accordingly.
