10,000 Islands Everglades Fishing
I began fishing with my father for rainbow trout on the AuSable River in Michigan when I was seven years old. I was hooked for life! During many family vacations to Lake Missaukee my fishing skills were honed on Sunfish, Bluegill, Crappie, White Perch, and Northern Pike.
While attending the University of Hawaii, I was drafted into the US Army and served two tours of duty in Viet Nam as a combat photographer for II Field Force Hurricane Magazine. Released from active duty, I obtained my degree in Cinema and Still Photography from Southern Illinois University. I eventually ended up in Florida.
Inspired by Florida’s rich history, I continued to explore the great fishing areas from Pine Island to Everglades City. This exploration convinced me to move to southwest Florida. Wanting to share my enthusiasm for sportfishing, I settled in Naples and became a charter captain concentrating in the 10,000 Islands and Everglade waters.
