Background
I have lived in Merritt Island all my life and have been fishing the waters off Pt. Canaveral since I was a small child with my family and friends. I love to fish in many different ways but sight fishing for Cobia and Tripletail are my favorite. I love spending time on the water, chasing and catching fish, teaching others to enjoy fishing and improve their skills.
Techniques
I love to fish in many different ways: sight fishing for cobia and tripletail are my favorite, then live bait trolling for kingfish, Spanish mackerel, cobia, jacks, and sharks. Other effective ways to catch fish out of Pt. Canaveral that I enjoy are dead bait trolling and power drifting for bottom fish.
