About The Captian
Message from the Captain:
"I grew up on the South Shore of Long Island and have had the good fortune to have been on a boat since birth. I have fished from Hawaii to the Bahamas and I have worked as captain or crew on many different types of boats, commercially and for recreation. I am a full-time Physical Education Teacher on the Island and I have a "reel" passion for fishing. I enjoy showing anglers and friends different fishing methods, species and especially watching someone set the hook on there first trophy fish or that fish of a lifetime. Fishing to me is about being on the water, the planning that goes on before the hook set and building memories with friends. Give me a call and lets start making memories."
