Background
I started fishing here in Destin around the age of 5. I began on the Okaloosa Island Pier and my passion for fishing grew from there. I eventually started going out on boats and seen the opportunities that was away from land. My first job on a charter boat was actually as a cook at the age of 15. I was allowed to fish if the customers weren't ordering food lol. I eventually became a mate on one of the boats in the harbor. I left fishing for awhile and went out to the oilfield were I ended up getting my captain's license. After several years I decided to come back to what I love. I was hired on as a 1st mate with a great captain. Then opportunity presented itself with a great partner and I now have my on fishing vessel to make memories with some great people.
