started fishing twenty-four years ago for fun and got more
and more into it until I was fishing three or four times a
week. My full time job was waiting tables in Beverly Hills
at night, which averaged 25-30 hours per week and left all of my days
fishing was getting out of hand and there were some
months where the rent had to be paid late because I had fished
a little too much. I eventually found a second job that was
40 hours per week and only paid about half of what my restaurant job
paid but I was devoted to it -- I was a sales rep for a fishing
tackle distributor and I had to visit every tackle store
from LA to Santa Barbara and talk about fishing.
Heaven to me!!
occasionally had to go on promotional multi-day tuna trips
into Mexican waters and most of the money I was making from
my second job was being spent on wholesale fishing tackle.
had everything needed to start a charter fishing business
but the boat. So it was a dream come true when I began working
as a fisherman in Key West.
was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. but never lived there. My father was in
the army so I moved a lot as a kid. I lived in Korea and Italy.
By the time I graduated I'd been to twelve different schools. I have
a degree in geology and I speak Italian and some Spanish.
lived in Key West for about sixteen years now and I have
two beautiful daughters, Ginger and Katie. The oldest was born in
Clearwater, Fl. and the youngest in Key West so I've been blessed
with a "conch" and a "cracker".
licensed captain since 1995.
Tackle, bait and expertise included.
