Member since September 2015 Cape Canaveral, United States
Background
I'm a true Florida native and have been fishing my entire life. I literally grew up fishing out of Port Canaveral and know these waters well. I have also dove most of our wrecks and have firsthand knowledge of exactly what I am fishing. When I am not running charters I am commercial fishing. This allows me to stay on the water and stay current with where the fish are. One of my favorite things to do on charters is put kids on fish. We are very family friendly and will ensure everyone has a great time.
Techniques
My style is versatility. In our area as the seasons change so do our fishing tactics. We are constantly adapting to changing conditions to put you on the fish and having a good time doing it.
