Background
I'm a third generation charter captain out of Chokoloskee, FL. I have over forty years of experience on the water. I charter out of a 22' tournament edition Pathfinder and provide top-of-the-line gear for my customers. The species that we target range from fishing the backcountry mangroves for Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Tarpon, to going offshore and targeting Tripletail, Permit, and Cobia. I've been featured on shows such as The Sportsman Adventure with Rick Murphy and have also fished on The Professional Redfish Circuit on both the FLW and IFA.
