Captain Brett Lutze has been guiding charters for 7 years now. He is Coast Guard & State of Florida licensed with a Bachelor's and MBA from Purdue University. Up until the point when he decided to leave the corporate world and take on angling full-time he spent his weekends fishing. After a while, his love of being outdoors and on the water prevailed, and he decided to pursue his captain calling. Today, Capt. Brett prides himself in providing great customer service and putting his clients on the fish constantly, while giving a personal tour guide of your surroundings. Captain Brett loves to coach and educate his clients on the type of targeted fish, their habitat, and the best techniques to catching fish.
