Archives for December 2019


What an incredible year of fishing in 2019! This has been one of the busiest years in my charter fishing career! And I couldn’t have done it without all of you! Even with the regulations due to the red tide outbreak of 2018, you all stuck with me and fished on a catch and release basis for snook, reds, and trout. I had the awesome pleasure of making several new clients throughout the year also! My daughter turned 13 this year, and I will be heading into my 20th year of professional guiding in the Tampa Bay area! The fishing has been fantastic as we round out 2019, so 2020 should be another tremendous year! The regulations on the West coast of Florida have really made a difference in our population of game fish.

I hope to see many of you again in the spring. Although January, February can have tremendous trout and redfish fishing in St. Joseph Sound. I would also like to give a special thanks to Ozona Fish Camp, my home Marina. It is by far the best departure location in all of Tampa Bay in my opinion! 
Thanks again everybody, and have a Happy New Year! Let’s go fishing!
