Wendy and Jennifer
The day started off well leaving the dock from garrison bight marina with sunny blue skies. We headed out about 8 miles searching for yellow tail snapper and maybe a bigger fun fish to reel in. After catching a bunch of yellow tail the girls decided they wanted a bigger fish. After about 20 minutes of searching the deeper waters a nice shark hit. Wendy had it on the line and landed it. Her first shark! Got a picture and took off for key west to finish the day laughing about all the great stories of the day.
And look at that face she never ever gets scared………

Growing up, I always looked forward to all water activities - whether it was swimming, scuba diving or fishing. I visited Key West and was mesmerized by the warm weather, laid-back lifestyle and the beautiful waters - where the ocean meets the gulf. I packed-up my things and moved to the southernmost city.
At first, I held multiple jobs got on the water as often as I could. I was fortunate to have some local watermen take me under their wings and show me the art and science of offshore fishing. I quickly progressed from deck hand, to mate, to captain. It was a great experience and I still help them out to this day.
Nowadays, I still love fishing and spend most of my free time fishing. I will go out and try different techniques or try to find new spots. In the slower season, I spend much of my time under the water studying the fish behavior and how they are affected with the tides and moon phase. As I progress as a captain and angler, I always try to push myself into more challenging situations.
