Alex Short

Member since September 2016 Destin, United States
Background
I found my passion for fishing at a young age while growing up in North Georgia. This lead me to pursue and earn a Bachelor's degree in Fisheries Management. After graduating, my wife and I took a leap of faith and headed south to the Emerald Coast. I quickly discovered my calling to work on the water. I now enjoy spending my days watching old and young reel in their fish of a lifetime. I am blessed to captain the Hambone SFII and look forward to raising my son on the beautiful Gulf Coast.
Techniques
Whether its bottom, trolling or sight fishing, we try to incorporate all tactics needed for the species of fish we are after
