I have been fishing with my father since I was able to hold a rod, and it has always been the driving passion in my life. at the age of 10 I started "borrowing" my dad's boat to go fishing. I got my first job as a first mate when I was 20, and that's when i got involved in serious big game fishing. I started skippering at the age of 24, and began entering tournaments, ranking national champion twice in a row in 2007 and 2008, and taking bronze in the FIPS world chamionship in Xabia in 2009.
Since then I have competed and ranked in many championships and skippered several boats in the Algarve, until i decided to buy my own boat and take it back home. I was tired of travelling 100 miles or more in a day when I could simply pull out of the harbor back home and be in the deep waters and with the biggest fish immediately. (IGFA Certified Capt)
