As your Sanibel fishing guide I have the best job in the world... Taking your family to the pristine waters that surround Sanibel Island is my full time occupation and passion!

I grew up on the west coast of Florida fishing off the Big Indian Rocks Fishing Pier. After hooking into my first Snook I was addicted. I learned from a legendary Tarpon fishing guide, Jack Kelly, who was always there to help a kid or answer a question. 15 years ago after experiencing the incredible Tarpon fishing here I moved from the lower FL Keys to Sanibel Island. The abundance of game fish here is impressive, with miles of mangroves, rich grass flats, and white sand beaches.

Anglers of all skill levels will enjoy fishing the clear grass flats or the mangrove lined shore that surrounds Sanibel Island. There is always an exciting species available year around. In fact, in the Spring and Fall there are almost too many choices to pursue.

Keep in mind that I am often booked up several weeks in advance so don't wait, call me now and we will plan a trip to catch the excitement.

I have everything you need to enjoy a fun filled adventure, licensed, insured, I carry the finest tackle, all included in your trip.

As a full time professional fishing guide I am focused on providing a safe, comfortable, and exciting trip.
