For those looking to run distances offshore greater than 9 miles, we do have an outside captain, and good friend that has special N.O.A.A. permitting to fish in federal waters. He fishes out of a beautiful 28' Intrepid boat, and is as good as they come. I consider trips with him catching trips.

I believe 90% of the experience, is within the guide. My Job as a guide is to Instruct. My passion is to teach. Nothing brings me greater joy than being able to share what I love with others. As a guide, there are a lot of variables. Many things we cannot control. The weather. Tides. Availability of bait. But the few things I can, are the ones that really matter. I love people, dogs, kids, and fish. Not necessarily in that order. Talk to anyone that knows me, and your likely to find that I am very easy to get along with. I grew up in a small Town, so naturally I do have the Southern Charm/Hospitality. I did not take Rosetta Stone Southern Edition. Yes. I do talk funny. I grew up in a rural town in Kentucky with 3000 people on the banks of the Cumberland River. Have been fishing since I could walk. My first experience on an Airplane took me(and dropped me) for 4 months in the Alaskan Bush where i worked as a fly fishing guide. I spent 3 1/2 years in the Everglades as a guide. Now residing in Historical and Beautiful Fort Myers, Florida. • US Licensed Coast Guard Captain Since 2009• CPR/First Aid Certified• USCG Drug Testing Consortium Member• Naturalist
