In 2002, I decided to one up my fishing career by getting my Coast Guards Captain’s License. At first, I picked up this license in hopes that I could make a little extra money to pay for college. But as the years went on I began to realize that this was my true calling and passion. In 2004 I graduated from St. Leo University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. But it was then that I had to make my most crucial decision. I decided to become a full-time guide in 2004 and have never looked back.
Although I attribute most of my guiding success to my commercial fishing years it’s my clients that have helped me become truly successful. On average I fish 200+ days a year and of those days 10-15 are spent with clients fishing tournaments throughout the state of Florida. The success my clients and I have had on the tournament trail over the years is the true catapult for my business success.

Because of my vast experiences and knowledge of different areas, fish, and their patterns I myself and all of my charters fish for over 20 different species of fish day in and day out. My specialties include (but are not limited to) Sight fishing for Redfish, Tarpon, and Tripletail, Fly Fishing for World Class Tarpon, Plugging for Grouper and Cobia, and just CATCHING!!! I am also an ORVIS endorsed fly fishing guide and Certified Fly Casting Instructor. I extremely enjoy teaching the art and skill of fly fishing to new and experienced flyfishermen/women.
