Mr. Lucky Sportfishing

If you want to fish with a native Floridian with grade A electronics and tackle and a lifetime of knowledge, look no further than Mr. Lucky Sportfishing. Based in South Pasadena, the company is perfectly placed to access the amazing fishing the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. Captain Steve Doss is a native of the Tampa Bay area and has been fishing it since childhood. An avid tournament angler, he’s determined to help you return to the dock with a boat full of fish.

The Whiskey Tango is a 35’ Cabo Sportfishing boat. All the equipment on board is brand new and of the highest quality, with the latest Garmin, Simrad, and Raymarine electronics and brand new Caterpillar engines that will get you to the best fishing spots fast. The boat is extremely spacious, providing plenty of room to fish for up to six anglers, and it features a shade canopy for the comfort of all on board.

You’ll be fishing with top quality Penn and Shimano reels, and St Croix and custom made rods to give you the best chance of getting the fish on the boat. The Gulf is home to a range of species from Tarpon to Mahi Mahi, including Red Snapper and Grouper, and you’ll head up to 70 miles offshore to have the sea all to yourselves. Capt. Steve will help you troll, bottom fish, jig, and pop to make your catch, no matter what experience you have.

With live bait awaiting you on board and fishing licenses included for all customers, there’s really nothing you have to do other than bring your snacks and drinks – and don’t forget your sunscreen! Come aboard to see what you can catch with Mr. Lucky Sportfishing and you won’t be disappointed.

About the Captain

Steve Doss
South Pasadena, Florida, United States
Member since May 2016

You could say Captain Steve is a natural fisherman. According to his family, his very first word was "Fish" – you couldn’t ask for a better start to a life on the water! Growing up on Tampa Bay, he studied the weather patterns, moon phases, and ecology of the local area, as well as learning about the feeding patterns of the fish, seamanship, and navigation. Steve’s passion for fishing has resulted in him competing in numerous tournaments targeting Tarpon, Trout, King Mackerel, and Billfish. With all this knowledge behind him, he makes sure his charter guests come away not only with plenty of fish to take home, but also with an enhanced knowledge of the area’s history and ecology.
