Background
I have loved fishing since I was a child. I am naturally a goal setter and have had 3 professional goals in life: become a Marine, a Firefighter, and a Charter Boat Captain. This was the last goal in my trifecta. I have owned 3 boats and kept upgrading as I gained more experience on the water. I am also a Captain for the Fire Boat. All of this, coupled with growing up on the water and being in the Marines (onboard a ship) has given me the knowledge and confidence to run my own charters. After 20+ years in firefighting, I decided to pursue my Fishing Captains license and start my own charter business. It has been a dream come true. From the experienced sport fisherman to first-time fishing experiences, family fun days, and diving trips, I love all of the customers! I want to ensure they walk away with an incredible experience, and hopefully, if the fish are biting, plenty of fish!
Techniques
My favorites are Offshore bottom fishing, light trolling and jigging. Also have plenty of experience with Inshore fishing, crabbing, clamming and diving as well.
