    afternoon 1/2 day fishing trip is a 4 hour charter that departs at 1pm and returns at 5pm. not everyone wants to get up early while on vacation!!! if that appeals to you then this is the right trip for you. with two high tides and two low tides every day afternoon fishing can and is just as productive as our morning trips.

Born and raised in the Florida Keys, I learned to fish at an early age. Fishing and diving became my second nature. First, I started working as a commercial fisherman and then added being a professional guide to my resume. I'm a third generation captain and professional guide. I've proved my skill in various tournaments.
