Member since April 2017 Key West, United States
Background
Captain Jamie Connell has been fishing professionally for over 10 years. Jamie grew up fishing, working as a mate on head and charter boats in the Northeast. When he was 20 years old, Jamie decided to move to the Florida Keys and begin a career as a guide. Having guided on St. John in the Virgin Islands for 2 years, targeting Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and other species, Jamie moved back to the Keys. He started Flying Fish Charters and has already gained an excellent reputation.
Techniques
I like live bait fishing and fly fishing.
