Background
I have been fishing Long Island Sound and the surrounding waters for the past 35 years. I am a U.S.C.G. licensed charter captain and have been co-owner/operator of Kingfisher Charters with my brother for the past 15 years. A life-long fisherman, my extensive experience includes catching local inshore species (Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Sea Bass, Scup, and Blackfish), offshore species (Tuna, Shark, Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, and Wahoo), and fish from the waters of the Caribbean and Central America (Tarpon, Snook, Sailfish, Grouper, Snapper, Barracuda and many others).
Techniques
My favorite type of fishing has always been targeting larger fish with live bait. That is why the Kingfisher is one of the few Charters in CT. that specializes in using live bunker and has become known as a top producer of trophy sized Stripers and monster Bluefish. I believe in providing trips that allow the customers to actually fish, not just hold a pole while the boat drives around (trolling). My passion, competitive nature, and enjoyment for helping others catch the fish of a lifetime is what motivates me to be the best and most productive captain on the water every trip.
