Member since May 2015 Placida, United States
Background
I was raised here in Southwest Florida moving here at the age of 9. I learned to fish from a local Captain. I am a service connected disabled veteran retired from the U.S.C.G. I look forward to hearing from you but am even more excited to meet you if you do purchase a charter in beautiful Southwest Florida.
Techniques
I have fished from the North Atlantic to Kodiak, Alaska to the Florida Keys. I have fished Mexico and Central America. I have learned techniques to make me successful and am willing to answer any questions you have even if you don't charter my boat.
