He enjoys teaching anglers how to successfully land some of the most sought-after species, such as Snook, Redfish, Trout, Kingfish, and one of the greatest sportfish – Tarpon!

The captain will also take care of your fishing equipment. Everything will be ready to use before you even come on board. You only need to pack some snacks and drinks for the day. You can also keep the fish you catch and it will be cleaned and filleted after the trip.

Join Captain Shane with Nautical Soul Sportfishing and you’ll be sure to have an exhilarating day on the water landing fish!
