Destin, United States

Background
Captain since 1986, I have been running SCUBA and fishing charters continuously since that time. I have been a Scuba diving instructor since 1985, I don't teach anymore, but still dive when I am not fishing! I absolutely love the marine life of the seas, I'm still fascinated by the diversity of it as well. My degree is in Biology so I naturally am drawn to the salt water and all its critters which reside and swim there.
Techniques
At Double Time Charters we prefer using light tackle, often with live bait, for the most fun and fight while fishing. Trolling and bottom fishing are the most popular methods we use, but sight fishing when available is also utilized, either in Cobia season, or anytime the opportunity presents itself during the summer, such as when we find large Sargassum (seaweed) rafts floating, as there are always lots of fish activity around and below the rafts..

Nearshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico
