Captain
Philip Bloom

Member since December 2015 Nokomis, United States
Background
I've been fishing since I could hold a pole and have been fishing professionally for about 20 years. I mainly fished Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass in northern lakes and rivers, and also competed at the pro level. I've fished the Chesapeake Bay (where I grew up), Outer Banks, as well as the Great Lakes. I've also fished in the Keys for Bonefish and Tarpon. I finally found my way to Venice and Sarasota where I've been chartering for 10 years.
Techniques
I fish every way possible to get my customers some nice catches.
