How did you first get into fishing? What’s your earliest fishing memory?

My dad would take me to a local pond in Illinois fishing for panfish, bass, and carp around the age of five.

Eventually I started to venture out to other areas as I grew up.

How did your charters business come to be?

The business started as a hobby; taking out local friends of friends. I eventually set up a website registered as a business in 2010.

After five years just doing it as a side gig, I went full-time in 2015.

What are the different kinds of charters/tours you offer?

We offer both inshore and offshore saltwater tours, as well as freshwater tours for peacock bass and other exotic fish.

What’s one of the most memorable tours you’ve given?

There are so many trips that stick in my mind that it’s hard to choose.

Every trip is a different experience. That’s why I love what I do.

What do you love to do outside of fishing?

Family has become number one – once I finally found my wife, I realized this. I also love to play poker. The mental aspect of trying to figure out what people are thinking intrigues me.

Finally, I love to travel, but that usually involves fishing.
