About the Captain

Jeff Schneider

Member since April 2016
From a young age I always wanted to be a charter captain, although I ended up chasing my dream of riding motorcycles. As that career was winding down I turned all my focus on fishing. Moved from Florida to Louisiana and the rest is history. I am now pursuing my new career with the same determination and drive to be the best.

Captin Downs worked hard both days, no slacking, 100% effort. That in it self would be enough but he also produced - 110lb yellowfin, line peeling wahoo, 25lb snapper, in all we caught 8 species. And, moreover, he looked out for my wife and made sure she had a wonderful, memorable, 2 days. We are booking our next trip now. Can’t wait to spend another day or two with Captin Jeff Downs.

His prices were fair and included fuel. Some guides will price gouge but this wasn’t the case. Capt. Jeff was honest about the weather the day before and of and never once hesitated to back out even though we had rough seas the morning of. His knowledge and professionalism made for a good days catch. In short- we will be booking a Marlin trip with these guys soon! The experience was great, and you have to be reasonable with any guide, they can’t promise you a catch or limit. That’s just fact! If any guide promises you to put you on fish well they are blowing smoke up your ass. His honesty and pricing will keep us coming back. His equipment is very well kept. Very professional angler!
