Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Captain Woody developed a passion for fishing as a child and years later, he is still expanding his fishing knowledge base and skill levels. A military veteran, college graduate and business executive in the construction equipment industry for over 20 years, Woody learned early on how to market and manage a successful business. When asked what one thing contributes most to his business success, he responds, "it is very simple: customer service."
Several years ago, Woody added writing to his list of enjoyable activities. He now contributes monthly fishing reports and articles for various magazines, newspapers and periodicals. He is a member of the Florida Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA) and Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA), National Association of Charter Boat Operators (NACO), American Sport Fishing Association (ASA) Hillsborough County Marine Law Enforcement Advisory Committee and Florida Guides Association.
