I was born in Texas and grew up on the Gulf Coast. I've been fishing with my family for as long as I can remember. In my early teens, I had the opportunity to get my first real dose of blue water and giant fish. This is where the addiction started. Since I've gotten older, it's become a passion of mine to see people's reactions to hooking into a fish of their dreams, give them the opportunity to harvest their own dinner, and make memories with their friends and families. We're a young business and haven't been at it as long as some captains but don't let that distract you. When you arrive at the boat, we want you and your guests to feel like family and at home!
