Guide at a Glance
Melbourne, Florida, United States
I am the owner operator of a charter company here in Florida. Growing up in the region, fishing was in my blood. My father and I would spend every viable weekend on the water when I was a young child. I fell in love with the River Lagoon, Banana River and Mosquito Lagoon. The abundance of various fish in these places is why I like to fish.
As a teenager, my adventure hobby grew into a passion. I studied the migrations of snook, tarpon and redfish. It was important to understand the seasons on the flats, the feeding habits and the locations of these swimmers. I charted everything I learned. Soon, I was teaching my friends my knowledge including proper catch and release techniques and how to lure the fish.
Shallow water fishing was my first focus until I learned of the tarpon migration in these waters. I believe we have the best waters to find these trophy fish. That’s why anglers travel from across the globe to fish here. I recently discovered the art of sight fishing. With my experience and knowledge, I knew my dream of being captain of my own fishing boat would come true!
I come from a big family of outdoor enthusiasts and athletes. Aside from fishing, I enjoy football, camping, hiking and traveling. I love being outdoors and the adrenaline rush of catching the big one is overwhelming. I began the company to work doing what I love, fishing. The idea of sharing the sport with others was very appealing to me.
Although I am starting small, my love for this interest is more intense than profit. I enjoy helping people in their quest for the big catch!
