I grew up fishing the Palm Beach County area and have spent the past 15 years catching fish from the brackish Palm Beach County estuaries to the bluest of blue water well offshore to – our specialty – catching world-renowned Atlantic Sailfish just offshore in the Sailfish Capital of the World. My passion for fishing is matched only by the satisfaction of putting people on the fish of a lifetime, especially young or first-time anglers.
When you fish with me on the beautiful and rugged 29’ Sea Fox Gettin’ Lucky, you will benefit from my dedication to comfort, safety and “fishability.” I am a 50-Ton Master Captain and a Chapman Sea School graduate. I am fully licensed and insured. Being a salary first mate for 4 years, I learned from the best. I have the reputation of being meticulous when it comes to preparing the Gettin’ Lucky, my tackle, my boat and especially my clients for tackle-busting excitement. Constant research and innovation fuel me to catch more fish every trip. I have been a full-time fishing charter captain for 9 years and feel blessed everyday, to fish the most beautiful waters on the East Coast of Florida.
After 15 years of “getting up close and personal” with the Atlantic Sailfish, I have the tactics to find them – and plenty of them – so that you can experience the heat-stopping jumps and screaming runs by the fastest fish that swims. Nothing can compare to the “cockpit chaos” when we’re fighting double, triple or quadruple-headers (having 2, 3 or 4 sailfish on at the same time. This is why anglers from all over the world travel to Jupiter and Palm Beach County. If you’d rather bring home fresh fish for dinner, we can target tasty species like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Tuna offshore by trolling or we can fish the offshore wrecks for all varieties of snapper, grouper, cobia and kingfish among a myriad of other species. Keep in mind that the Jupiter bottom and wreck fishery is great for kids just starting out as anglers.
Don’t forget about our renowned inshore fishery either! We can take you on an inshore adventure that could take you from one of our inlets all the way back to hidden estuaries in pursuit of Tarpon, Snook and “tackle-busting” Jack Cravelle. This trip is tailor-made for the light tackle angler in you.
