As a Fourth-generation native Floridian, I have spent more than 30 years soaking up the unrivaled fishery that is Southwest Florida. I spent much of my youth fishing everywhere for everything that could be caught in fresh or saltwater in this state. As a true Florida “Native” that has fished every single corner of the state for every single species of fish this great state offers, I knew this region was special the first time I laid eyes on her upon moving here after graduating from the University of Florida. Every time I go out on the water, whether it is the mystery and allure of the 10,000 islands and Everglades, the beautiful beaches and mangrove jungles of Naples and Marco or the grandeur of the Pine Island Sound and all of its Islands, I feel like I am stealing something wonderful from the rest of the world! For the past 30 years I have studied, mastered, and observed the awesome gamefish and wildlife with the eye of a Florida native, and the excitement of kid at the beach for the first time in his life.

The only thing I find more enjoyable than fishing in my “playground” is to take folks like YOU with me so that you can absorb the diverse and lush surroundings that make Southwest Florida such a unique fishery and home to beautiful wildlife. I take great pleasure and great pride in watching my clients stand in awe of what our area has to offer.

No need to worry about finding the fish. As a successful Southwest Florida tournament angler, I’ve found ways to get on the bite when the pressure is at a maximum. You get to take full advantage of my decades of hard-earned experience fishing this entire region.

Come join me aboard my 18’6” Maverick Master Angler as we pursue saltwater inshore legends such as Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Seatrout, Black Drum, Snapper and all kinds of Sharks. You’ll never forget the experience of stalking these fish in waters ranging from the skinniest oyster bars to the fullest mangroves to the deepest passes and shallow wrecks.
