About Capt. John
Charter Information

Born and raised in Texas and growing up fishing for spotted seatrout and redfish on the grass flats has led me to the Great State of Florida to tackle more than just two species of fish. Having played professional sports, taught marine sciences in high school for more than 5 years, worked as a ecological consultant, and presently a contributing writer for the Florida Sportfishing Magazine using my education from two outstanding Universities in Wake Forest and the University of Texas, to molding me into a unique fishing guide. Preferring the classroom of the back country I have replaced my chalk with a 22' push pole and using the knowledge and patience I have acquired from teaching kids and playing professional sports to encourage my clients to the experiences of a life time... Possibly the next world record tarpon or snook on fly or spinning..... One of the current world records for snook on fly comes from one of the areas I fish. I have the experience and equipment to take you where the big fish swim shallow.

The New 2014 Hells Bay Whipray designed by Flip Pallot will take one or two anglers to the farthest and shallowest water. The Whipray floats in 4 " of water and runs 39 knots with two anglers including myself. Its weight is just about 500 pounds and is powered by a 4 stroke 60 Horse Yamaha motor. The 18 gallon gas tank is strategically placed below the fore deck perfectly balancing this light skiff. Its range of just over 100 miles per day makes it an ideal fishing skiff for the angler looking for a real adventure. Fishing such haunts as Lostman River, First Lostmans Bay, Broad River, Mud Bay, Yours Bay, Gate Bay, Fakahatchee Bay are just to name a few potential fishing areas in the infamous Everglades National Park., 10,000 islands and Pine Island Sound.
