My first stint at guiding came back when i lived in Miami/Homestead, FL. I was working in bank management, but found myself literally eating, breathing and living fishing. I would take friends out who had taken well known guides, and we would have equal or greater success. As many as 4-5 times a week, I would get out of work, take off my tie, and change in my car, heading to do some night fishing. I would fish a few hours, head home, clean the gear and fish, and do it all over the next day. I realized that if you truly loved what you do, you could do it forever. I got out of banking. I went and obtained my captain's license, and guided Biscayne Bay and Flamingo. I did this until we left Miami due to family medical issues where we moved to Ocala. We stayed for a year and a half in Ocala before I just couldn't take being away from the saltwater. We moved to Cape Coral so I could attend Marine Mechanics school. It was only a matter of time before the itch to guide again returned...
