About the Captain

Frank Tropepe
Pompano Beach, Florida, United States
Member since November 2015
Capt. Frank Tropepe grew up in South Florida. As a kid he was constantly exploring the tropical wetlands of the Everglades, roaming the backcountry for Redfish and Snook. He got his fist taste of offshore fishing when he was stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Needless to say, he was hooked (not literally). Over the next decade Captain Tropepe fished whenever he could. His love of fishing drew him to create his own bait service for local fishermen and charter boat operators, while at the same time starting to offer private and commercial charters himself.

We had a good day on the water despite the light fishing action.

I have only been fishing a handful of times over the years and I hate going out and getting sun burned and not catching anything. When we got to the dock in the morning I was joking around with captain Frank about that. I told him that we better get fish on the boat. He told me that he would make it happen. We set out and from the time we got out the inlet to the time that the charter was over we where doing something fun and exciting. We caught 5 big Mackerel Kingfish 4 tunafish and a ton of snappers with yellow tails. There was also another snapper that was red with a black spot on the tail that he told us was a great eating fish. Thank you Big Time Outdoors. The family and I will be back.

When the term “Fishing” translates to “Catching”. Captain Frank is the type of angler who knows the water like the back of his hand, and will put you on some serious game fish. I had an unbelievable fishing experience fishing with Frank. Great pricing for the experience! Ive gone on way too many charters that were sub par, but this charter with Big Time Outdoors is one that you just can’t pass up. Looking forward to my next trip with Captain Frank. Thanks a million Big Time.
