I moved down here in 1988 with my parents from Ohio. My father had just recently retired and wanted to spend the rest of his life fishing in Marathon, Florida. Of course I was his right-hand man and first mate. I started out fishing by myself on the flats then I moved up to the reef and then I started fishing offshore for all the pelagic fish like dolphin, wahoo, and sailfish. I’ve always had a passion for the ocean and I can’t be away from it for too long.
One of the best aspects of being a charter captain is that I still enjoy watching people catch fish. From children to adults, on a charter with me, you will actually learn how to catch the fish we are after, and have lots of fun doing it! There’s nothing like seeing the excited faces of people who have never fought our saltwater fish at the moment they make their first catch. It’s what I love to do, and my charters are all about sharing that local experience with newcomers and experienced anglers alike.
