The U.S. Navy brought me here in 1976, where I served as Navigator on the USS Moctobi in Everett, Washington--long before the current Naval base was even there.

I am married to my wife Patty and have two great kids; both graduates of the University of Washington.  

I began recreational fishing in the early 1980's. My first time out was an experience I'll never forget. I hooked a fish and knew it was going to be a big one. Being the two well prepared novices that we were, my good friend and I soon realized we had no net. After fighting with the fish and bringing him next to the boat, my buddy reached over and grabbed him by hand, heaving him into the boat... It was a 20 pound KING SALMON! That hooked me on the whole fishing thing.

I decided fishing was too much fun not to do it professionally.  I spent a few seasons chartering in Alaska and then began spending the past few here in Puget Sound. I started working for other charter companies running boats but then decided that running my own boat and my own business, was the way to go.
