About the Captain

Jason Gabriel
Cudjoe Key, Florida, United States
Member since March 2015

I was born and raised in South Florida. I started fishing Key Biscayne, Flamingo, Islamorada and the Lower Keys at a very young age. I was in or on the water as much as possible. I learned at a very young age to navigate and fish the waters from Palm Beach to Key West. I knew from a young age that I wanted to have a career as a captain or guide. I studied for my captain license as soon as I was of age and I started guiding in Islamorada out of Holiday Isle, Worldwide Sportsman and Papa Joe’s. After many years of guiding anglers to their inshore dream species and many tournament wins on spin and fly tackle, I was offered a position on a large sportfishing yacht and the next chapter of my career began. While on vacation from a motor yacht in the Keys, I took my beautiful bride Debi fishing and she saw the passion that I had for inshore and offshore fishing. We packed up and moved to the Lower Keys to start renewing my passion all over again.
