Member since January 2023
I was born and raised in South Louisiana. Growing up near water, fishing has become embedded into my lifestyle. I may be new to guiding, but I've been fishing my entire life. I began fishing inshore at a very young age. But when I started learning about bass fishing, I wanted to do nothing but bass fishing. I instantly fell in love with it, which lead me into competitive bass fishing. Although I am still into competitive bass fishing, I have always seasonally targeted inshore fish. Since I have created a Charter bussiness, I have committed myself to inshore fishing for the enjoyment of helping people catch fish and creating an experience that will last a lifetime! I've always wanted a career in the fishing industry whether it involved fishing competitively, commercially, or chartering. So I am excited to take my clients out on the water and share my love of fishing with them.
