I have been a professional full time captain and guide for over 20 years. Growing up in Avalon, NJ since age 10, exploring the local waters both inshore and offshore has been my life. I have been running boats and fishing full-time since graduating from Stockton University. My passion for the water and the desire to catch fish is not a hobby for me or a retirement job. It is my career, and my success depends on the service I provide. I strive to educate and help achieve a clients aspirations of fishing and boating. It may be trying to beat your biggest catch or introducing your grandchild to a fun day on the water. I have spent numerous years as a private sportfishing captain. My responsibilities include managing the owners vessel in every aspect from daily maintenance to prepping the boat for a million dollar tournament. I spent the summers fishing out of New Jersey and relocating the vessel to Florida/Bahamas for the winter months. I have extensive experience in the Florida Keys as well, spending ten winter seasons fishing the gulf stream waters and endless acres of saltwater flats. This experience has directly implemented my fishing in New Jersey. The use of live baits and the ability to approach fish in skinny water is essential. Nothing compares to having the experience of actually being on the water day in and day out. So if you are trying to catch anything from marlins to minnows, let my experience guide you there.
I hold a United States 100 ton Masters License and am always current with the Federal requirements necessary that must be maintained with the license.
