Member since July 2015

Virginia Beach, United States

Background
My father ran one of the first Charter boats out of Virginia Beach. My brother and I have been fishing from a very young age and we both love the sport. I am a USCG Licensed Master Captain and I have fished extensively along the East Coast, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas and many other islands in the Caribbean. I love the competitive camaraderie of the fishing world. We are a tight knit group here in the Mid-Atlantic. Virginia Beach is a great spot to fish. There is nothing better than hooking up to a big Blue Marlin in the morning, catching some Whites in the mid-day and trolling for Bigeyes late in the afternoon. This is truly one of the best places to fish in the world and I'm very fortunate to be a part of it.
Techniques
For the most part we mostly troll along the edges of the canyons but we will live bait, kite fish, chunk, drift and use any other method we can to catch our customers fish.
