My dad has been fishing in Fort Lauderdale since the 60s. I grew up fishing in here too and became a captain the day I turned 18 – and I've been out fishing every day since! I love fishing and love getting my customers hooked up to the fish of a lifetime. Nothing thrills me more than having people come fishing with me year after year and planning their vacation based on coming out on a big game fishing charter with me. I love to fish and love getting new people into this sport. It's a lot of fun and there isn't any excitement to match being hooked up to a world-class gamefish.
