Michael Darveau

Member since April 2017 Jacksonville, United States
Background
I was born and raised here in Jacksonville and have fished these waters my entire life. I have gained my knowledge of fishing through tournaments and the countless hours I have spent on our waterways. I am confident my experiences will provide you with a fantastic day of fishing. My preferred technique is sight casting to Redfish. Not everyone is capable of fishing that way so I have several other ways to catch fish. If you have never caught one or an inexperienced angler, my techniques will give you the opportunity to catch fish.
