Sportfishing is my passion. From the time I was 7 years old, I dreamed of being two things: a PGA Tour player, and a professional sportfishing captain. I wake up every day pinching myself. I absolutely love what I do, and I feel incredibly humbled and blessed that I am afforded the opportunity to do it. I look forward to serving you! The bottom line is, we will do whatever you like doing. Prefer to troll all day? Super...we'll do that. Prefer to bottom fish all day? No problem...we'll do that. If you ask me what my favorite is, I absolutely love the anticipation of trolling. Cruising around knowing that at any minute a rod could go off with a day-making catch is awesome. And when it does, I can't contain my excitement!
