I have been a Coast Guard licensed fishing charter captain in Tampa for 25 years. Having full coverage insurance and Red Cross training, I have your safety always in mind. Check me out and see how a quarter century of experience can put you on the fish.

My specialty is flats and backwater fishing for snook, speckled trout and redfish. However I also like to deep water fish for grouper, snapper, cobia and tarpon.
