Apollo Beach, United States

Background
I was born and raised in Ireland, where I would walk miles as a young lad just to go fishing in the rivers and streams of County Tyrone. I made my way to the United States in 1986, living in New York for thirteen years. Florida beckoned however and I moved to Tampa with my wife and sons. I owned and operated a number of Irish Pubs in the Greater Brandon area and their success enabled me to follow my passion for fishing. I made sure I lived only minutes away from the South Shore and Apollo Beach. I established local fishing clubs in my pubs. These proved to be successful platforms through which I hosted expert speakers and special events and organized fun fishing tournaments. I enjoy taking people fishing, whether they are beginners or intermediate anglers looking to improve their skills.
Techniques
I charter the flats and Tampa Bay. I fish St Petersburg and Clearwater all the way to Sarasota. I fish for Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Cobia. I use live bait mostly.
