Don Gates was raised in Central Florida and has spent the past 28 years fishing the east coast of Florida and off Texas in the Gulf of Mexico. Don fishes with a group of friends that have become one of the best fishing teams in the Florida Keys. His team has marked and released dolphinfish every year since the Dolphinfish Research Program began in 2002. To date, they have released an astounding 2,250 fish the most among any fishing team participating in the Program. Don plans on retiring to the Florida Keys in three years where he will focus on fishing full time. Don and his team feel that this research is important to the long-term sustainability of recreational fishing. Don works in the oil industry based out of Houston, Texas.
