2024 Tarpon Season will be here soon!

Hey everyone welcome to my website!  If you want to book fishing dates with me, shoot me an email.  I’ll be fishing a limited schedule for 2024 (likely 3 days a week on my new boat) and I now have Capt. Stephen Byrd running my other Contender full time.  I still take occasional trips short notice so don’t be afraid to reach out to me.  If I know I have a window where I can fish you can sign up to my mailing list when I announce those dates as well.  If I myself or Capt. Stephen are not available, I recommend Capt. Trentin Leary who is running our 20′ SeaCraft Bay Boat.  If you have a dream of catching & mounting a trophy tarpon please email me to get your dates locked in – I will try extra hard to get you on my personal schedule if you are going to mount a trophy tarpon!

My team of captains have learned lots of the tips & tricks I’ve found over the last 15 years of my professional guiding career and have been putting in hard work & time (being most important)!  You can see what we’ve been catching here lately on our regularly updated fishing reports.

***Capt. Trentin is offering discounted trips through December 22, 2024.  Click here to find out more!***
