Pensacola Florida

Hailing from Pensacola, Florida, my heart beats for the thrill of landing substantial catches from a small boat. I’m fortunate to call the Gulf Coast of Florida my home, a region where you can pursue a wide array of formidable fish species right from a kayak. The opportunities are endless, from the exhilarating chase of monstrous tarpon along the beach to the hunt for big bull redfish in the shallow waters, all contributing to the extraordinary fishing experiences that Pensacola has to offer.

As the owner and operator of Emerald Waters Kayak Charters, my guide service specializes in targeting impressive catches such as red snapper, king mackerel, mahi, and even Sailfish, all within a mile off our pristine white sand beaches and the crystal-clear emerald- green waters. On the flip side, we also venture after inshore species like redfish, trout, and others in the serene shallows of grass flats.

Beyond the thrill of the catch, I have an immense passion for sharing my addiction to kayak fishing through the lens of photography and videography. My go-to vessel is the Hobie Pro Angler 360, renowned for its versatility.
