Background
I was born in Englewood in 1968 and have lived here my entire life. I grew up fishing are local bay, bridges, and creeks. I am a retired Englewood firefighter/EMT serving 21 years. I am a full time, licensed and insured U.S.C.G charter Captain. I have a vast knowledge of our local waters, fish, marine life and the history of our quaint little town. I take great pride in making sure every one of my charters is a memorable experience and meets my clients' needs and expectations. I can customize your charter to fit your skill level, from beginner to seasoned angler. I am looking forward to great memories and new friendships!
Techniques
My preferred style of fishing is light tackle with live bait,fishing our grass flats,mangrove shorelines,oyster bars,beaches and pass. I also provide a wide variety of artificial lures if needed. I offer sightfishing/push polling my clients across are shallow water grass flats in pursuit of redfish and other species.In the months of May, June and July I offer sightfishing/drift fishing nearshore off our beaches for Tarpon. I can accommodate most inshore fishing techniques and fishing styles. I have top quality tackle and gear to take on snook, sharks, redfish,trout,tarpon and any fish in between.
