Captain
James Cordiano

Member since April 2019 Everglades, United States
Background
"Ten years ago, I moved to SoFLo from NJ and never looked back. I have been freshwater fishing all my life, but became obsessed since moving here. From Snakehead and Bowfin to Largemouth and Peacock, SoFLo has it GOING ON!" Captain James has been fishing for 10 years in Florida, and freshwater fishing is his specialty. This is his side job, as he works as a therapist (helping people improve their mental health). Captain loves being out on the water because it’s very relaxing, and nature is beautiful and peaceful. James enjoys teaching people about the history and ecology of the fishing area.
Techniques
Stalking huge fish in shallow water.

SLOBS ON DECK

May 25, 2019

The Glades are ON FIRE right now... With all this rain the fish have spread out, so it takes a experience to know where to find them. A problem on this trip! Read Full Report →
