I have fished all my life in mostly freshwater until I was stationed in Okinawa with the Air Force, where I fell in love with scuba diving. Stationed here in Florida's Panhandle, I took up saltwater fishing and found I have a knack for it. After almost 22 years in the Air Force I decided to retire and start a charter with the two hobbies I fell in love with: fishing and diving.
