Being on the water and fishing has long been a passion of my family...it has long been a passion of mine!
For as long as I can remember, I have lived on the water, and held a rod in my hand. To me, there was nothing better as a child, than feeling that familiar twitch that tells you, “FISH ON!”
At the age of four, my passion for fishing began in freshwater ponds and streams, with my father and brother. From bass, crappie, blue gill, and perch fishing in Indiana, to salmon fishing in Michigan, to walleye fishing in Minnesota, we fished everywhere there was water. After eventually moving out west, it wasn't long before we were fishing the lakes and rivers of Colorado, Nevada, and California.
I was also, at a very young age, introduced to offshore and inshore saltwater fishing by my grandparents. (We all get it honestly!) Living on Ft. Myers Beach, and owning 7 boats, they were very avid fisher people! Grandpa and grandma taught me a lot about saltwater fishing! They still do!
I now focus my attention on in-shore saltwater fishing, and I can't get enough of it!
Seventeen years ago I was introduced to kayaking. It took one time out, and I was hooked! My passion for exploring the estuaries and waterways began. Witnessing nature up close and personal was simply amazing! Bringing my two passions together, was only a matter of time.
I have been a kayak fishing and eco-tour guide for over 17 years now. Having the ability to share my passion with so many others, is why I love doing what I do. I am fortunate to have the opportunities I do, and I only hope to be able to share them all with you!
