Captain Alex grew up in a small town located outside Columbus, Ohio. Throughout his childhood, Alex enjoyed fishing and hunting more than the average kid. It is here that his passion was sparked for hunting sea-life. Even though he was hundreds of miles from the salt water, his life-long dream was to become a Fishing Guide in Key West; a dream that has come to fruition. Fishing the flats is one of Captain Alex's strong suits because he brings the hunting and the fishing background together to get the fish in the boat and have a great time doing so.

Fantastic trip with an excellent guide! I have fished all over north and south America. You always wonder what kind of guide you will get. One that works to provide a good trip or one that just provides a trip. Alex provided fantastic service and got me on a lot of tarpon! He operates a newer boat with updated electronics, trolling motor and main engine. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that wants to catch fish! Five stars! …
Alex was awesome! Had us all over the Tarpon. Hooked up on 3 studs. Highly recommend
Great day on the water. Alex put us on the fish and provided a memorable day.

My son and I had a great time with Captain Alex. Tarpon was on our bucket list. I was able to catch one first thing in the morning. After that it seemed as if the fish just didn’t care to bite. Alex tried hard to locate some cooperative fish. After a couple of moves we went back to the area we started in. We managed to get another hookup, but were unsuccessful in landing that fish. In between stops he put us on some snapper and we caught enough fish for a local restaurant to prepare for that evening meal. We both had a great experience and we are definitely coming back to fulfill that bucket list! …
The trip was absolutely fantastic. We were a group of four and it was our first time fishing tarpon. He had the patience to teach us and got us to land 2 tarpon. Tons of action the entire time. He has a really easy going vibe and made the trip a blast. Really appreciated the time and effort he put in. Would 100% recommend using him. …
The details matter. As a former deckhand I can tell when the captain is giving it 100% and Alex delivers. Alex is super friendly and knowledgeable about fishing the area. The boat is set up perfectly for backwater/ inshore fishing with the range to get offshore weather permitting. Live bait was on the boat when we were picked up, also got some Ballyhoo in the throw net at one spot. This was a family trip and everyone caught fish and had fun. Capt. Alex worked hard to put on the fish. We targeted multiple species and fished several different presentations. Mangrove Snapper and assorted Grouper were plentiful.(fish tacos were excellent!) Sashimi was suggested for the Cero Mackerel- no problem, Alex bled the fish before going on ice. We even fished a little past our prearanged time to try to get a big one for the road. Fish cleaning was handled promptly at the dock and we were on our way with dinner. I would definitely book again. Thanks Alex! …
