Captain Tim was born in 1968 & started fishing at the age of 6 at the local piers from Santa Barbara to San Diego. Soon after he started fishing on the local sport fishing boats & as a deck hand on private sport fishing boats. Also from a very young age he fished all the local lakes all over Southern California to continue honing his fishing skills & abilities.  In 1998 he moved to the Northern Rockies of Montana, where he became a fresh water fishing guide & competed in the Western Bass fishing tournament circuit. Though he lived in Montana he continued to return & fish the ocean in Southern California & Mexico. In 2002 he acquired his USCG 50 ton masters license from the maritime institute of San Diego. Even though he does fish fresh water for enjoyment now, his main focus has always been big game fishing. He is continually experimenting with new tackle, technology & techniques. He has been seen on TV shows such as - "Inside Sport Fishing" & has been published in books such as Captain Fred Archers "Shark Trolling," & "the Modern Art of Trolling" in addition he is a contributing author of "West Coast Fishing Styles." Captain Tim was one of the first charter captains to offer strictly shark trolling charters & on-the-water instruction. His knowledge & expertise of shark trolling brought him & his crew first place in the Finnseeker First Annual Thresher One Tournament out of Dana Point, CA & he has C&R'd as many as 5 big Threshers in one day.
