Get a taste of the rich and varied fishing opportunities available in Tierra Verde aboard El Capitano, a 32’ SeeVee high performance center console. The twin Mercury 350HP outboard motors give the boat the necessary speed to head quickly to the offshore fishing grounds in the Gulf of Mexico, and its stable design makes it a comfortable ride for passengers. Equipped with a wide range of Garmin electronics and a high-power VHF radio, the boat is decked out with all the necessary modern navigational technology to help get you to fish. You can also rest assured that all the mandatory USCG safety equipment is on board, with offshore-rated life jackets for everyone on board, a six-person life raft, EPIRB emergency locating beacon and a SPOT locator device.

Tierra Verde is located between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, providing a range of fishing options for every charter trip. Within easy reach of St Petersburg, the waters in this area are teaming with a variety of fish species, from various types of Grouper to Red Snapper, Mahi-mahi and Redfish, plus many more. During the summer, nearshore charters can target the high-flying Tarpon and the impressive King Mackerel, while dedicated offshore charters can throw up anything from a Sailfish to a Hogfish.

El Capitano is mainly run by Capt. Chad Hickman, partner of Capt. Ryan Farner. Capt. Chad is a dedicated sports fisherman who primarily devotes his time to deep-water sportfishing. If you are hoping to catch a huge Grouper, a jumbo Snapper, oversized Amberjacks and other hard-fighting species Capt. Chad is the right guy to call. He has been fishing professionally since 2007 after returning from four and a half years serving in the US Coast Guard. It was during this time, while he was serving in Puerto Rico, that he picked up the name ‘El Capitano’, a title he has worn proudly ever since. Chad competes in numerous high-profile sportfishing tournaments as part of the El Capitano, Kingpin and Kingfish Connection teams.
