The Full Story
Growing up on Longboat Key I started fishing at the young age of two. Over the years I have fished many tournaments and captained various boats. Being on the water is where I belong. In addition to charters I run a custom rod business building inshore and offshore rods as well as gaff's and bait nets.
Come fish with the only Captain in the area that has survived a Bull shark attack 7 miles off Anna Maria Island. In 2011 CJ was floating in the water after a day of spearfishing when he was attacked by an 8-9 foot bull shark. He survived this attack thanks to quick thinking from his friends and talented trauma doctors. After a year of recovery, he went back to his life on the water and hasn't looked back since. (Ask to see his scar)
Shaping the future generations to be self reliant and independent on the water.
