Fish Map


Welcome to

My name is and I am an angler, explorer, archaeologist, and software architect. I initially built this site as a tool to better understand the fish species around me and then in June of 2013 I decided to publish it online for everyone.

Florida Gar

I live in Tampa Bay, Florida and my goal is to catch, photograph, and release as many fish species as I can - I have caught 156 species to date. I love nature, adventure and exploring; most free hours are spent hiking, kayaking, fishing and taking photos. I am a member and volunteer of Tampa Bay Watch.

Spotted Sunfish

I have a BA in Anthropology from Auburn University and an MA in Archaeology from the University of Alabama, but I currently spend my time working in information technology programming and architecting logistics, warehouse, and order management systems. I have worked with most web based programming languages and databases; my most recent work has been with real time analytics using Node.js.

I hope some of you find the site useful and feel free to contact me with questions or comments. I would love to hear how people are using the site and any feedback you have. Links
