About the Captain

I have been fishing since I could walk. I have been fishing professionally for 28 years due to my experiences with my family's like living life and resort ownership. As for my opinion, there is no such thing as a preferred method of fishing. Whatever the fish want along with the abilities of my guests dictate what style or strategy we will be using. Off the record, I do enjoy fishing artificial baits when possible. I thoroughly enjoy my job as a fishing guide and have no intention to do anything else. After 5,000 trips under my belt, I've got what it takes to find the fish!
