The captain is good at a wide range of fishing techniques, such as light and heavy tackle, drift fishing, jigging, popping, kite fishing, spinning, trolling, and bottom fishing.

On a day out you will get an opportunity to learn about the local species and where to find them. The captain is great with kids, as well as with anglers of all ages and experience. Whether it’s your first time on the water or you are an occasional fisherman or even a pro – each trip you choose will be an eventful and memorable experience.

Among your targeted species will be Yellowtail Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Wahoo, Yellowtail Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, and many other saltwater species.

Your fishing trip with Capt. Shawn will include your rods, reels, tackle, live bait upon request, and lures. You will be offered soda and water, so feel free to bring your own snacks. The catch can be cleaned and filleted for you to take home after the trip.
