Member since May 2015 St. Augustine, United States
Background
I've been told they have pictures of me fishing in a mud puddle in the back yard at 5 years old (and catching fish), though I've never seen these pictures. After serving 20 years in the US Navy, traveling and fishing all over the world, and running the Navy's charter boat for Moral, Welfare. and Recreation as a part time job in Bermuda for 3 years, I retired in '90 and became a charter fishing boat owner/operator. I have literally fished all over the world. I have been lucky enough to fish for and catch Pacific Blue Marlin in Hawaii and Atlantic Blue's in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Texas, and Florida. I've caught Sailfish in Mexico, Texas, the Bahamas, and Florida as well. Now I specialize in teaching/instructing young (and not so young) anglers in light and medium tackle live bait trolling techniques, bottom fishing, and light spinning tackle (live and plastic bait) fishing in the ICW and its feeder creeks.
Techniques
I specialize in light tackle/live bait trolling for King Mackerel, Barracuda, Cobia , Greater Amberjack and Little Tunny (aka bonita) with the occasional Mahi-Mahi and Sailfish as well as bottom fishing for several snapper and grouper species (during the cooler months) on the beach and near shore artificial reefs. I also light tackle (20# spinning gear) fish for sharks and tarpon behind the shrimp boats during the summer months. Year 'round I fish the ICW (river) and it's feeder creeks for speckled trout, red fish, flounder and black drum (food fish) as well as lady fish, jack cravelle and blue fish (sport fish).
