Background
I was born and raised on Captiva Island. Yes that’s right… an Island native. I’ve spent most of my entire life fishing off the waters of Captiva, Sanibel & Naples.

My older brother and I were helping him catch bait since the time we could stand. When we were younger we would spend our free time on his charters learning from the best of the best. This enabled both of us to outfish 90% of the guides on the water by the time we were 10 years old. When I was just 11 I received my first boat. Having this boat enabled both of us to venture out on our own to apply new techniques and find new fishing spots. My family and I take tremendous pride in the first hand knowledge we’ve established over a lifetime on the waters off SW Florida. My 2 brothers and I are now guiding the waters and sharing our passion with our gues
