Capt. Brandon grew up fishing out of Lewes Delaware and Ocean City, Md. He first started mating on a charter boat when he was 14 years old. Since he was 18, he would fish off of Ocean City during the summer months and travel south to Florida and Bahamas during the winter. In the past 8 years he’s spent 4 months in the winter in Islamorada and is now a full-time resident. His mission is to provide a 5-star fishing experience in what many anglers refer to as the ‘unofficial sportfishing capital of the world’.
All the appropriate rods, reels and bait for all members of your party are included in the price. Captain Speilman is fully sponsored by a variety of notable fishing brands, including Fin Nor, Quantum, Van Staal and Mustad. Both live and artificial bait are provided on each charter, along with a customary cleaning and filleting of your catch following the trip. Fishing licenses are mandatory for all occupants of the boat and are covered by Capt. Brandon.

Our family of 6 had an awesome time on the water with Captain Chad. Everything about our 4 hour trip was great. Captain Chad did a phenomenal job finding a great spot to fish and kept us catching fish the entire time. We have enough yellowtail to eat for the rest of our trip!!! The kids had a blast as did my wife and I. Back at the marina Chad and Brandon filleted all our 32 fish to perfection. We’ll be back next year! Thanks guys!

Everything was ok it was a very nice trip.
Only comment is that it turned out it was not tarpon season, so advertizing a tarpon and shark trip at that time is of course debatable.
We had a nice day and ate the fish caught in a restaurant.
Boat and Captain was very good.
