About the Captain

You could say I started early, because I’ve been fishing the Mississippi River since I was 5 years old. 

See the little kid in the picture? That’s me.

Check out my shoe… I had to remove my shoe lace to string up my catch of the day.

I love fishing, and want to show you the beauty of the Mississippi. And catching catfish is just plain fun.

I have a USCG 50 ton Masters license and have owned boats on the this river for over 20 years. 

You will have a great trip and I will supply all of the equipment necessary. Plus, I only use quality tackle. That is key. 

The Mighty Mississippi is an active river. It is always changing, which is challenging for beginners. I average of 100 days fishing per year, so I know my river well.

I have been with the Memphis Fire Department for 14 years. Working 10 days per month allows me to pursue my passion for fishing.

As you can see from these two pictures… I’ve gotten better over the years.

Let’s go have some fun.
