About the Captain

Member since October 2016
I have fished all my life in mostly freshwater until I was stationed in Okinawa with the Air Force, where I fell in love with scuba diving. Stationed here in Florida's Panhandle, I took up saltwater fishing and found I have a knack for it. After almost 22 years in the Air Force I decided to retire and start a charter with the two hobbies I fell in love with: fishing and diving.

I would recommend Kitchen Pass to anyone looking to charter fish in Panama City Beach, FL.
We had a wonderful time and will be going back in the summer. Plenty of fish, even in the cold weather.

Trip did not disappoint! Captain Tew was very professional and did a great job taking care of anything we needed. Biggest thing to me is he wanted to make sure we caught fish and did everything he could to make that happen. If you want a captain who loves fishing and wants to make sure his clients catch some rather than someone just content to take their clients’ money and say oh well if they don’t catch anything, Captain Tew is your man. When he says 2 to 12 hour trip, he means it.  He’ll fish as long as you want to. We’ll never forget that huge king (or at least half of it after the shark got done with him!). Thanks for a great day!

Thank you for a great day and the nice comments.  I’m a luck man to be able to make so many new freinds doing something that I love.
