Member since January 2015 Gulf Breeze, United States
Background
I am a veteran and a born fisherman. Growing up I fished every waking hour that I could. Whether it was a lake, river, pond or creek, I always had a line in the water. In 2002, I moved from Huntsville, AL. to Gulf Shores, AL. I took my first deep sea fishing trip on a boat that was owned by the family of one of my friends. Over the last 16 years, fishing the Gulf of Mexico waters primarily off of Pensacola Beach, FL and Fort Morgan, AL, has been the only fishing that I have done. In 2014, I completed my training to become a 6-pack captain. I became a captain not just because I love to fish, I also love to pass on my knowledge. Nothing feels better than teaching someone how to fish in these beautiful waters, especially children. All of my children, five daughters, enjoy fishing and I have one that is currently pursuing her captain's license. I invite you to come share in my love for fishing! I Look forward to our trip together! Tight Lines, Captain Kal
Techniques
My trips, and what I really excel at, are near shore and off shore. Bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Triggerfish and other snapper species are the staple of fishing off of Pensacola Beach. Nearshore (shallower waters out to 9 miles from shore) trolling for Spanish and King Mackerel, Little Tuny and, as of late, even Sailfish and Mahi-Mahi (Dolphinfish). I offer night Shark fishing trips. My favorite are all day or overnight Offshore trips. My ProKat 2660 Center Console is perfect for taking groups up to 6 people offshore, in deep, blue waters, fishing for Bull Dolphin (large male Mahi), Blue Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna and even some Billfish species (catch and release only).Man! I'm excited now....Lets go Fishing!!!!
