Captain Andy Everhart grew up fishing offshore with his grandfather, who was also a captain and charter operator.

He hosts a local fishing series called “Southern Sportfishing Saltwater.” The TV show covers everything from surf fishing to inshore, offshore, and Gulf Stream fishing as well. Capt. Andy was also selected to become a member of Century's Pro-Elite Team, an honor that only a select few anglers have the opportunity of joining.
