a 37 year old native of Jacksonville Florida. For him, fishing is not a
hobby but a way of life. "Born and raised" with a rod and reel in his hands,
Capt. Ray was blessed with a father who took the time to take him fishing.
This fostered his love for the sport.
In 1992, Capt. Ray obtained his captains license and began guiding angling
enthusiasts to his favorite "hot spots". Since then, he has been living the
life most anglers dream about, plying the waters of northeast Florida and
sharing his passion for fishing.
Capt. Ray is an accomplished inshore tournament fisherman in the Northeast
Florida area--winning six inshore events including back-to-back Inshore
Fishing Tour Championships. So whether it is bass fishing, top water
fishing for trout or wading the flats for tailing red fish, Captain Ray will
create for you, the ultimate outdoor fishing experience.
