Welcome to Key Biscayne, Florida, United States

On any given day, you can find me out on the flats or in the backcountry somewhere between Flamingo and Biscayne Bay, putting clients on bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, and redfish, or working the local network of freshwater canals for peacock bass, largemouth bass, and exotics.

Miami-area freshwater canal system
The canal-based water management system in South Florida is one of the world’s largest and most complex civil works projects.

The South Florida canal system comprises more than 1,300 water control structures, 64 pump stations, and 2,600 miles of freshwater canals.
