Member since February 2018
I grew up fishing south Florida. By the time I was 13, I started commercial fishing, tournament fishing and taking clients boats to the Bahamas. After high school, I attended the University of Alabama, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree. A month after graduation, I earned my 50 Ton Masters Captains license and moved to the Panhandle. Since then, I have been lucky enough to earn a living working on the water. I love what I do! I especially enjoy taking families and watching the excitement on their faces when they watch their kids catch there first fish or the biggest one. I enjoy building lasting memories with families and making lasting friendships with my clients. Capt Justin Jones Grew up in Panama City Beach and 30A, fishing these waters his entire life. He enjoys using light spinning tackle, and fly fishing. On his days off he is usually back out on the water chasing big jacks, tarpon, redfish on fly and tournament fishing.
