I’ve been an avid angler along the East Coast, from Florida to Nantucket, throughout my entire life. My fishing journey initially began in rivers and lakes, but it gradually evolved into saltwater fishing, both from the beach and boats. About 12 years ago, a friend introduced me to kayak fishing, and from that moment on, there was no turning back.

I decided to revisit freshwater fishing for a while to refine my skills before fully immersing myself in saltwater fishing. Since then, I’ve primarily focused on saltwater angling up and down the East Coast, targeting species such as Stripers, Blues, Fluke, and my personal favorite, False Albacore, also known as Albies.

In 2023, I had the opportunity to assist a friend who owns Shore Kayak Fishing charters, guiding kayak trips. It has been an absolute blast for me to pass on the knowledge and experiences I’ve accumulated over the years to others who share an interest in this thrilling sport.
