To achieve this qualification is a rigorous and long-term process. I started training for this particular business in 2012 when I joined the National Professional Anglers Association and was my first step.

The current boat that we will be navigating in is a 2003 Champion – 194 Fish-Hunter. I am the third owner of this boat, and am very well acquainted with the first two owners. I have been fortunate enough to have been fishing out of this particular vessel since it left the factory. It was repowered with a 2019 – 200 Horsepower Mercury PRO XS in late 2019. This will comfortably fish up to 4 individuals.
