Member since June 2017
Captain Art has been fishing ever since he was a little boy, and is obsessed with fishing and diving the blue water and the deep sea. Art received orders to Florida, for the second time, in Aug of 93 where he has fished and dived these waters non-stop. Fish behavior and habitat has become second nature to him through all his underwater encounters. He has made hundreds of dives off the Florida coast and has discovered numerous uncharted fish and lobster havens that always bring good results. It is said that if the fish aren’t biting then Capt Art will go down, see what the problem is; and fix it!!! Capt Art retired from the AF in June of 2003. He is now doing what he enjoys the most, FISHING AND DIVING, DEEP SEA ADVENTURES ON FLORIDA’S TREASURE COAST.
