As a life-long Naples Native I have grown up and been obsessed with the Gulf of Mexico my entire life. I started fishing local waters many years ago. From there I learned the many tactics and skills required to land trophy fish.
Eventually I found my true calling of offshore fishing and spearfishing. Along with being a USCG Captain, I am a certified Dive Master with over 1500 logged dives and know the dynamics of each spot we will fish because I have dove them all.
My goal is to have a fun and educating day on the water with the opportunity to bring home a fresh catch with fishing stories that will last a lifetime. I have worked at a SCUBA shop for 5 years and have dove just about every spot offshore of Naples.
Locally I give back to the marine community by promoting fishing rights activism, awareness and have appeared on local news stations discussing them. My monthly column in the Coastal Angler magazine can be provided upon request.
