I was born in Englewood in 1968 and have lived here my entire life. I grew up fishing are local bay, bridges, and creeks. I am a retired Englewood firefighter/EMT serving 21 years.

I take great pride in making sure every one of my charters is a memorable experience and meets my clients' needs and expectations. I can customize your charter to fit your skill level, from beginner to seasoned angler. I am looking forward to great memories and new friendships!
