Background
What can I say about myself? I was born to a 5th generation boat builder slash charter boat captain son.As a child most kids push a lawn mower to make money but at age 10 I was taking on as a second mate on my dad's 50 foot charter boat the marlin fever. After working through most of my teenage years as a mate I noticed that you cannot fall in love with the ocean at a young age for it will take you away from your family. So after many years of Contracting building houses I later returned to the ocean at the age of 35. Enjoying the last decade-and-a-half fishing side-by-side with my father I got my captain's license 3 years ago due to my father's illness. Since then I've taken over the family business and become a 6 generation boat captain. Every time I leave the dock I believe that I'm going to set a world record with a fish now although I cannot promise you a world record I can promise you to give you the most memorable trip possible and hopefully with some fish.

For up close to the beach we like to troll with spoons for the best way to catch fish is to make it look like what the fish like to eat
