My life of fishing began as a child, fishing tournaments with my father from North Carolina to Connecticut, and ongoing recreationally/commercially out of Cape May and Ocean City. My early introduction to sportfishing jump-started my journey to fishing professionally. My love for this game only grows with every day spent on the water, with my greatest happiness coming from bending the rod and putting fish on the deck. I take great pleasure in sharing these experiences with others and educating others on this beautiful sport. From the bay to the canyons, I pride myself on being a jack of all trades, able to put people on a variety of fish consistently, inshore and offshore. I love meeting new anglers, beginners, and experts, and I look forward to having you aboard the Mod Squad. Tight lines and good times await!
