I love the outdoors. I have spent my entire life fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, and practicing survival skills. Professionally I was a career U.S Army Infantryman for 22 years. This presented opportunities for me to fish and hunt all over the world. I have fished offshore extensively in Panama City Beach and the Georgia coast out of St Catherine’s sound. My Georgia coast offshore angling was with my lifelong friend and fellow Army retiree. He was a fully sponsored offshore tournament fisherman and one of the most successful charter captains on the south east coast for 12 years. I have also fished offshore in Miami, the Keys, Hawaii, and Venice Louisiana. Additionally I ran a striper fishing boat in South Carolina and Kentucky for 5 years. Most recently I have been exclusively fishing the Gulf waters of Panama City Beach for many years with great success. I know the habits of the local species and have a great knowledge of the local waters. My fishing experience diversity has given me skills which enable me to catch fish utilizing many different techniques. I have a USCG Masters license.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
This is a family and veteran owned and operated business. We only do small private charters and focus on a fun and enjoyable fishing experience. We are patient and understanding with clients that don’t know anything about fishing including women, children and small families. We are a fun upbeat crew who truly enjoy putting our clients on fish, having a great time, and enjoying the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. On our charters you won’t feel like a number surrounded by strangers. You will feel like part of the family and part of the fishing process. You will actually learn how to fish. Our main methods of fishing are trolling and bottom fishing. So come on out, have fun, and catch fish!
WHAT I PROVIDE
My boat is a Cobia 22’ center console powered by a 150HP Yamaha 4 stroke engine. It has all the latest technology and safety equipment. You will be using all high end Penn rods and reels. I will provide your license, tackle, cooler, ice, fish cleaning, and fishing instruction.
WHAT TO BRING
You will need to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, snacks, drinks (no glass containers), camera, appropriate clothing, and any medications you need. If you are concerned about motion sickness consider taking a motion sickness medication before departure. I also recommend you apply sunscreen prior to departure. If you want to keep fish bring a cooler. Leave it in your car. We will not need it until we return.
