The Guide and Charter services up and down the Emerald Coast can cater to your every whim and desire.
Growing up in Alabama...
Bass fishing was the thing to do, my mom and dad had a house on Logan Martin Lake just outside of Birmingham and I had a rod and reel in my hands from the time I could walk. But when I moved to the beach back in 1988, about the only place I knew to bass fish were in the lakes that lined the golf courses near my house in Sandestin, I tried fishing in the bay but had little luck.
But now my passion is Inshore Fishing...
In 1999, I was fortunate to meet and soon became close friends with Captain Bill Allen. Bill grew up fishing St. Andrews Bay and his real love was fishing the shallow inshore flats for Redfish. Over the next few years I found myself fishing with Bill on a regular basis, the first thing that I realized were the similarities of the Largemouth Bass and a Redfish, you could catch redfish on bass baits and bass on redfish baits. I was so lucky to have Bill share with me the ins and outs of inshore fishing and to this day he remains one of the most knowledgable fisherman I know.
Team ShallowTails...
As my passion grew for inshore fishing, my youngest son Michael, who at the time was just 3 years old fell in love with it too. Now Michael is 20 years old, an inshore charter guide and my tournament fishing partner... Team ShallowTails was born!
