Captain Dale Timberlake, US Coast Guard Licensed Captain - I've been boating since I was a kid and we did our family outings fishing and crabbing on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and on the Intracoastal Waterway in North Carolina. I raised my family in Chicago where we made Lake Michigan our home for family outings and chartering. I'm now full-time on the Tampa Bay beaches from Clearwater and Dunedin to the north all the way to Anna Maria Island, Sarasota and Siesta Key to the south. For background, I have a Computer Science Engineering degree and an MBA in Finance and Real Estate and have been a Group Manager for Microsoft, a Practice Director for Oracle, a Vice President for Kemper Financial Services and Jones Lang LaSalle Commercial Real Estate Services, and I've owned an advertising agency. I love being on the water all the time. That is my "happy place." Hail Yeah!!
