Father and daughter Travis and Carly booked a trip with me on the fourth of July. We met at CB’S Outfitters on Siesta Key early in the morning in search of anything that would bend the fishing pole.

Carly, who was an excellent fisherman and very patient, fished hard even though she had a cast on her left hand from a cheerleading mishap. Our search for a fish was challenging until Travis hooked a snook on a topwater lure.

They were visiting from Kansas City and saw things that they normally would not see such as dolphins, pelicans, and the beautiful waters surrounding Sarasota. I reminded them to remember this day come mid-January.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.
