Jonathan grew up in Orlando and on the “Space Coast” of Florida. He has always loved saltwater and freshwater fishing here. Before guiding he took a detour as a PE teacher for a few years, but the call of the water was too strong. Capt. Jonathan hung up his whistle and picked up his push pole.

But in this episode, the Mosquito Lagoon redfish bite was so incredible the most difficult part was heading home.
