Started fishing at an earlier age of 6 while fishing with my dad. Did a lot of fishing from Texas to Florida while winning the Dean Hawn Invitational Marlin Tournament many years ago out of Port Aransas. Spent all my summers in Rockport, Texas while growing-up. Enjoyed taking people fishing so decided to do it on a full time basis as a charter captain.
