My obsession is fishing and being on the water...I have been chasing fish for most of my life. Primarily the freshwater apex predator, the Muskellunge. I spent a lot of time on the Great Lakes and inland waters of PA, NY, WV, Tenn., KY, MI, OH, and Ontario targeting every sport fish they have to offer. Muskies, walleye, perch, steel head trout, brown trout, small mouth bass, salmon, striped bass, catfish, pike and more. I have guided many friends, family and acquaintances to catching their biggest or most fish of their lives and educated many folks about techniques and tactics targeting specific species of fish. I have been an educator in the PA public school system for 25 years, I communicate well with people/children and love meeting new folks all the time. In recent years, I embarked on a new adventure, saltwater fishing!. Applying my freshwater experiences to saltwater fishing has proven our success targeting a variety of species here in Florida. Being an experienced educator, also allows me the vital experiences and communication skills I believe make the best kind of fishing guides. I not only want to educate in a different more self satisfying classroom, but I want to build positive relationships and friendships through this new chapter in my life. I assure you a personable, informative and memorable experience aboard my vessel and many memorable catches!
