Get to know Captain Steve of Lake Lure Fishing Excursions.
Being an avid freshwater fisherman my whole life, I have a passion and love for fishing that is both infectious and entertaining. I've been taking out friends and family to my favorite fishing spots since I was a kid to hear them tell me that I ought to be guiding. I love being out on the water fishing and getting to know people. It is my greatest pleasure.
I grew up in Melbourne, Florida. I graduated high school and attended the University of Florida where I majored in elementary education. I taught elementary school for 17 years and was an assistant principal for 2 years. From these experiences, I have strong interpersonal skills with the public so that I am always friendly, helpful, and professional with both children and adults. I am also CPR certified.
In 1997, I married my college sweetheart, Michelle. We were soon blessed with two boys, Alex and Jacob. My family is my greatest inspiration.
In 2006, my family bought a home in Lake Lure and began spending their summers there. It did not take me long to realize that the crystal clear waters of Lake Lure were full of big and beautiful fish. I now enjoy spending my time on the water fishing every chance I get.
As your fishing guide on Lake Lure, I will ensure that you will have a great time out on the water. As Captain Steve, I am described as friendly, helpful, professional, personable, energetic, humorous, persistent, caring, flexible, knowledgeable, and always positive. My pledge to you is for me to be these words on every fishing trip.
Come join me on gorgeous Lake Lure. Let my love of fishing become yours too.
