In 1988 I moved my family to South Florida, and this is where my Bass career all started. First I joined a local Bass club then another one called “Hawghunters.” This is where I became known as “The Hawghunter.”
I first started offering guided fishing tours in 1991 in the Florida Everglades part time. Then as fate would have it, it turned into a full time business and I founded Hawghunter Guide Service in 1993. Since then, I have been featured in several National TV Shows & Magazine’s for spectacular guided fishing trips and trophy fishing in Florida.
Then in 1996 I took a big interest in Florida Peacock Bass fishing. After seeing what strong fighter these species are, I decided to broaden my horizons by offering trip to my clients to “THE AMAZON” for the monster 20 LB. Peacock Bass. Also this enabled me to study the habit and feeding frenzy and structure which help my guiding business.
Since 2000, I have been hosting trips to the jungles of The Amazon in search of the Tucunaré (Peacock Bass)
