Ryan Chabina

Member since July 2016 Holiday, United States
Background
My name is Ryan and I’m a Florida native that’s been fishing since I was 4 years old. Originally from Miami, I started Bass fishing in the canal behind my house. I moved to Tarpon Springs over 25 years ago and have been fishing these waters ever since. I spent my first few years learning the waters and fishing with friends for fun and then began to fish local tournaments. After having success in tournaments I started commercial fishing in the area which led to guiding. My passion is fishing but more importantly, it's to have the opportunity to share that passion and see people truly enjoy the great fishing and gorgeous nature I’m lucky enough to see daily. My job is to make your experience one you’ll never forget and head home at the end with a smile. Let's go fishing!
