Owner and Primary Guide

I am a licensed captain and have been fishing in South Florida for more than 20 years. I have placed in the money in twenty or more tournaments since 2007 and am featured in numerous articles on bass fishing.

I have worked with Bass Pro shops helping them on their photo shoots by catching some of the fish featured in their catalogs. You can also find images of me advertising products in some of their catalogs and in-store posters. I currently reside in the Fort Lauderdale area.

Thanks for visiting my website and I look forward to fishing with you soon!
