Sterling's Guide Service

Are you ready for an adventure unlike any other? Then join Sterling’s Guide Service today with Captain Sterling Branscum himself. Owner and captain, he will make sure you have the best possible time out on the water with him.

Hop on board his 25’ South Shore center console that can comfortably fit you and 3 of your fishing friends. This boat has a 250 HP Mercury Pro XS engine that will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it. On board are full safety and navigational equipment, so you can fish with peace of mind. The fishfinder, paired with the captain’s extensive knowledge, will give you that extra edge when hunting your prey and the best possible chance of catching that trophy fish.

On the menu are Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder. After the trip, the captain will happily fillet your haul for you, leaving you with the hard choice of how you will cook your catch later.

This vessel is great for everyone – it is wheelchair accessible (under 250 pounds) and is great for children over 4, with life vests available for them, too. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it.

Top quality rods and reels from Penn and Shimano are included in the price. The live bait for the trip will be prepared in advance, giving you maximum time to fish for your personal best. Water is also provided – the food and drink you bring along can go into the captain’s cooler. He will direct you to the best places to purchase.

Before each trip, the captain will do a short safety briefing. Although you’ll be keeping to the shallows, please let him know if you are unable to swim.

There is no better time to book with Sterling’s Guide Service. Capt. Sterling can’t wait to welcome you on board and show you the tricks of the trade.

"You have to be confident in what you do to do it right!" Captain Sterling Branscum became a captain in 2011 and has never looked back since. He lives on the water, so you could say that saltwater is in his blood. Capt. Sterling loves to meet new people and ensure that they have a great time out with him. The best part of the job is the satisfaction he feels when people catch fish, and that sense of accomplishment of bringing happiness to people. He recently won a tournament catching a 27" Redfish. You will feel safe and comfortable on board.
