Background
I'm very passionate about catching fish. I have a reputation for working hard and guarantee fish or we stay out longer. I fish for a living year round. Besides charters, I also catch fish to sell and also catch bait so I always know where the fish are! Following these fish on a daily basis helps to know their patterns and helps to produce more fish per trip. The more we catch the better I look so I'm always trying my hardest and working the whole time to produce a bite. I manage a Tournament team and we have a list of ranking and winnings under our belt.
Techniques
I like to live bait fish using the same techniques on my charters as I do on tournament day! Trolling also produces a lot of fish!
