Background
I was born in Destin, Florida, a place built around saltwater charter and commercial fishing. I have always loved to fish and began learning from Destin's best fishermen as early as I could get someone to take me on a boat.
Techniques
If I'm not fishing the bays. I'm in the gulf targeting anything from the pelagic fish to bottom fishing. I love teaching people how to fish!
