About the Captain

Member since February 2016
I have always been a fisherman. I love to fish anywhere, from freshwater to saltwater. When I got married 44 years ago, my wife’s dad was a fishing guide and suggested that I get my Captain's license - I did, and have not regretted it since. I love the outdoors.

Even in the hottest time of the year to fish I put an 18 inch and 25 inch red fish in the boat and had them for supper.  Being my first time in the area Capt. Tibbett’s put me on some fish and showed me the area by water and that was a great trip for me.
