About the Captain

I have always loved to fish since I was a child. I fished in freshwater lakes and ponds growing up. When I was about 19, a close friend invited me to go Saltwater fishing with him and his dad. On that day I found what I truly love to do, and I have been making the most of it since that day. I absolutely love being on the water offshore fishing. You just never know what you are going to see each day!
