Background
I have been fishing in Florida backwaters and offshore for 30 years, and still love every minute being out introducing this incredible water Wonderland to my guests. I have a passion for going out and hunting down Snook, Tarpon, Redfish and Sharks. I am the guide whom other guides hire to go fishing, and a handful of local captains often do as well. I have aired on two nationally syndicated fishing shows and did a show on Tarpon fishing with a youtube super star who came out to fish the Everglades with me. My fishing partner and I have won first place in 2 of 6 of the local tournaments we have entered together in the past 3 years. Whether you're looking to target the trophy fish of a lifetime or a family trip to go out and have fun catching fish, looking at dolphins and picking shells off the remote beaches of the ten thousand islands I can bring you out for a great memorable trip.
Techniques
I use a wide variety of techniques that i have perfected through 30 years of practice and studying fish behavior. My favorite style of fishing on charters is live bait. whether it be netting smaller fish for bait or getting shrimp from the marina live bait is the easiest way for my guests to be successful in bringing fish to the boat with the least amount of expertise to do so. For my own personal pleasure i prefer to Fly Fish or fish using top water plugs and other artificial baits. whether you prefer live bait, artificials or Fly Fishing just let me know and i will be able to set you up for success. Thank you for considering me in being your guide.
