My friends call me Sarge, and fishing has been a lifelong passion, primarily in northern California. I’ve spent countless hours casting lines from the banks of Lake Mendocino, Lake Sonoma, Clearlake, and along the East Fork of the Russian River. In 2011, I ventured into kayak fishing shortly after returning home from Afghanistan, and it […]

The Pacific Northwest offers some of the most amazing outdoor activities year-round. One of my favorite outdoor activities is fishing. When I got into fishing in this region, the options were from docks/piers or beaches/land/shore. These two options did not allow me to reach fish that are farther out. As I was fishing from a […]

I’m from Lahaina, Maui. I basically grew up on the beach learning to surf, fish and free dive. Kayak fishing has been a way for me to feed my family and still get my ocean time. From the first day I took out my Hobie Revolution 13 it has been an addiction, and I try […]

I’ve have been a kayak fishing guide in Northern California for the last 10 years. I focus on ocean nearshore rockfish & lingcod, SF bay halibut and when the king salmon show up close to shore that’s one of my favorite fish to catch on a kayak. I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle being outside and […]

My upbringing revolved around a family deeply passionate about fishing, and I caught the fishing bug at a very young age. Initially, I focused on shoreline fishing until around 2008 when I discovered the world of kayak fishing. Since that moment, I’ve been kayak fishing almost every weekend. What I cherish most is the feeling […]

In addition to my on-water adventures, I’m actively involved in the kayaking […]
