About the Captain

Hi, and welcome to my fishing charter web site. I am a South Florida Native with over forty seven years of experience fishing the local waters. For the past 35 years I have made the water of the 10,000 Islands my home. I know where the fish are, when the tides are right, what they are feeding on, and how to put you on fish. This wealth of knowledge, along with my commitment to you, is for you to have experienced the finest & most memorable fishing experience ever. I am an easy going person with a passion to teach you as needed the techniques to make your fishing successful. I believe that everyday on the water brings along new challenges; the weather is forever changing, so we just adjust our fishing techniques and locations to meet the day with a successful outcome.

Since 1990, I been fishing exclusively on Maverick / Hewes flat skiffs (manufacturer of the Pathfinder bay boats) and have been a member of their fishing guide team. All of my boats have been powered by Yamaha Outboard Motors. Having been on their guide program for over 20 years has given me a sense of assurance knowing that their tested dependability won't leave my clients and me stranded. I am also sponsored by Ft Myers Marine. Their commitment to sales and service has placed them on top of the Maverick / Hewes and Pathfinder dealership lists year after year. This commitment to excellence has allowed me to provide you, my clients, with a reliable comfortable shallow riding boat second to none. My sponsorship continues with Sage Fly Rods Mfg., G Loomis Rods, Power Pole shallow water anchor and other fine marine manufacturers. My membership includes the Florida Guide Association, International Game Fish Association, Coastal Conservation Association, and the National Association of Charterboat Captains.

USCG license and Insured, Everglades National Park guide permit holder, and U.S. Federal Fisheries permit licensed for the Gulf of Mexico migratory pelagic fish and reef fish.
