Growing up in Northern Utah I gained a love for the outdoors and fishing. I relocated to Florida at the age of 21. Still a kid, I did everything I could to understand this new fishery. Fishing for a living has been a dream come true for me. My passion for the sport and owning my own business drives me to go to every effort to offer a quality day to all of my clients. I specialize in light tackle live bait fishing. I educate my anglers in the small details that it takes to fool quality fish on live bait.
