Drew Cavanaugh

Member since January 2020 Edgewater, United States
Background
I was born in Montana and moved to Florida as a kid. I started fishing the backcountry waters in 1980 and have been fishing saltwater ever since. I decided to turn my hobby into a career and never looked back! My favorite fish is the Tarpon. For me, this isn't just a job, it's a lifestyle! I love helping people catch their first fish.
Techniques
I am a light tackle fly or spin, live and artificial bait angler. Specializing in Backcountry Saltwater and nearshore beach fishing trips. I fish the inshore waters and along the beaches nearshore.
