The captain has been fishing in South Florida for over 50 years. He loves being on the water. He started guiding in 2021 when he realized he fished almost every day and thought how nice it would be to make a living doing what he loves to do. The captain's favorite species are Peacock Bass, Clown Knife Fish, and Largemouth Bass. He specializes in light tackle using live bait or artificials.
