Quote from the Captain
"I've been fishing for tarpon in these waters for 18 years and have developed the skills and knowledge you will need to fish in these waters as well. I was born and raised by professional anglers so the passion for the sport was engrained in me at an early age. I have also fished in big tournaments all over the world including Costa Rica, Guatemala, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and much more. From bass to marlin fishing, fishing for the silver king is my favorite, and I can make it yours too. My priority is the client and their needs and quality comes first on a sport fishing adventure like this. What I always say is fishing is only as good as the communication between the angler and the captain. With a little help and a few shared techniques, you will be sure to experience why the tarpon is considered the silver king."
