Member since July 2016
Although Captain Allen Moudy grew up in Pennsylvania, his family would often vacation in Florida where he spent time fishing the North Key West waters. They eventually moved down South in the early ‘70s when his parents bought the Flamingo business, which Capt. Allen now operates. With two boats in the fleet, Capt. Allen usually runs sportfishing charters aboard the “Quiet Squaw”, while he alternates running the “Flamingo” with other experienced captains in his crew. Capt. Allen has spent time fishing various locations, including the islands of the Bahamas and as far down as Bonaire, and has also contributed to articles that were featured in ‘Sport Fishing’ magazine.
