Areas of Service and Expertise
Shawn has a deep understanding of the elements: the waters, the fish, the tides, the weather, the landscapes. He is able to travel to any part of North Andros to take advantage of the perfect combination for fishing conditions. His abilities to get you to the right place at the right time, and predict that’s where the fish will be, is uncanny!
He also seems to have x-ray vision and doesn’t miss anything. When sight-fishing, being able to see the fish a mile away gives anglers great advantage; and while you’re out exploring, you will see lots more natural wonders that you’ve never seen before.
As a guide, he has lead many expeditions for marine biologists, conservationists, film makers, and National Geographic teams on varies explorations, science research, and TV shows. He has been working with Kamalame Cay, Stafford Creek Lodge, Small Hope Bay Lodge, and Broad Shad Cay Lodge.

A fishing trip with him is a first-hand experience in showing the beauty of nature and raising Eco-consciousness. He believes that it is so important to protect our natural heritage – from the air we breathe, to the food we eat, to the climate we live in – since we all depend on our ocean.
