I've been fishing for nearly 60 years and enjoy fishing and boating with friends and clients. Having been blessed with good health I enjoy being on the water often with so many wonderful people I meet. I offer serious fishing, "fun" fishing, sunset cruises where I supply the wine and hors d'oeuvres, waterside dining, nature/wildlife viewing cruises, remote beach exploration and shelling. I am licensed by the USCG and fully insured.
If you wish to fish, I provide all the gear, any bait and have a license to cover up to four fishermen on the boat so no one needs to purchase one. All you bring is what you wish to drink and eat. I target redfish, snook, spotted sea trout, mangrove snapper, spanish mackerel, sharks and tarpon.
My 18 foot center console bay boat accommodates up to 4 adults and provides a very smooth ride for my passengers. I concentrate my charters in Pine Island Sound and in Matlacha Pass, launching from various locations on these two islands, depending on conditions. These areas are called in-shore versus deep sea fishing out in the Gulf of Mexico. My boat is never out of sight of land and on average the waters are calmer inside the barrier islands.
Families are welcome and some of my most rewarding charters are those with grandchildren who love the adventure. Please join me for a 4, 6 or 8-hour charter and choose the activities you prefer to provide the boating experience you desire.
