For as long as I can remember, my passion has been fishing. My earliest memories are wade-fishing the surf with my dad trying to get hooked up on anything that would bite. For the remainder of my childhood, we stayed very close to the coast to feed our fishing addiction. I went to Texas A&M Galveston in pursuit of a Maritime Business degree.
While attending school, I began to deckhand and guide every chance that I got. You couldn’t keep me off of the water and I was always known as the “Smelly Fishy Guy” in class. At the end of my Junior year 2015, I secretly purchased my first boat. I remember after purchasing this boat, I didn’t have enough money in my bank account to buy a Big Mac Cheeseburger. I began to market myself throughout social media and trying to take anyone and everyone I could fishing. My senior year I took 21 & 18 college credit hours while guiding every chance I had in between classes. I remember once my parents found out about the boat, they told me I could guide the summer after I graduated but after that, I had to get a “Real Job”. By the end of the summer, my fishing charter company “Out Cast Charters” was voted Galveston’s #1 Fishing Charter Company and also received the award for Best Boat Captain.
One of my greatest memories in life was my parents telling me that I could continue fishing for a living. I poured every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears into the operations of Out Cast Charters. We have been blessed by God and continue to grow. Currently, we have received Galveston’s Best Charter Company Award and Best Boat Captains each year and have 4 Full-time guides/several deckhands working hard.
Throughout the 3 years that I have been guiding, I would always yell “Its a MONSTA” on facebook videos when we hooked up to a big fish. In September 2016, we Trademarked a logo for “MonstaFishin”. We began to sell fishing apparel and created a MonstaFishin Prostaff Team. What started with just a few of us has now grown to a team of over 80 individuals around the world fishing for MonstaFishin. We have been blessed & can be located in several retail stores across the coastline.
