About the Captain

Steve Mathews
Pensacola Beach, Florida, United States
Member since July 2016
Captain Steve Mathews was born with a passion for water whether being on it or in it. He started out in Milledgeville, GA with a cane pole and crickets and today reels in Tuna, 100 miles offshore fromPensacola, FL. Fishing every chance he got, he quickly progressed in the knowledge to land bigger and better fish. At the age of 14, he acquired a scuba certification which sealed the deal of saltwater love. Becoming a commercial hard-hat diver at 19 with numerous certifications and offshore experience, he acquired a captain's license at the age of 22. With offshore oilfield schedule chewing into offshore fishing time, a decision had to be made. That decision has been the best one yet. Living HIS dream.
