Welcome to Fin Collector Charters
I grew up with a passion for the Outdoors and spent all my free time hunting or fishing.
I have over 40 years experience fishing in some of the most beautiful places in the US.
I have fished the intercoastal and offshore off the New Jersey coast catching flounder, blue fish, weak fish and blue crabs.
I was fortunate to be able to fish the interior lake systems in the state of Maine, that was some of the best smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing I have ever experienced.
I have taken numerous walleye trips with my late father-in-law on Lake Erie and I would have to say that walleye is one of my favorite fish to eat.
While stationed in California I was able to do some awesome surf fishing for perch and ling, I really enjoyed the off shore trips for tuna and rock bass.
During my years in Alaska, The Last Frontier had to be one of the most amazing fishing experiences that I ever had, from fishing the interior rivers for King and Silver salmon to the off shore fishing for Halibut, Ling Cod, rock bass and salmon before they made their runs up the rivers to spawn.
Over the last fifteen years my family and i have called Georgia home and have been fishing the Stripers, Hybrid and Spotted bass on the Beautiful Lake Hartwell. So with the passion and vast experience fishing I had made the decision to obtain my United States Coast Guard Captains License to be able to share some of my knowledge and passion for fishing.
