About Your Guide

Captain Don has always loved fishing. He grew up in Ohio, fishing for Smallmouth Bass and Walleye. When he got older, he spent 6 years as a U.S. Marine and fished in North Carolina and Southern California. I moved to Islamorada in 1986 when my enlistment was over. Been fishing ever since!

Captain Don’t was top notch all around. I took my 14-year old son offshore and even though we booked a full day, my son got sick and Captain Don was extremely accommodating and understanding. We took us back and was able to book the 2nd half the next afternoon. He ...Read More
