About the Captain

John Rivers
Tampa, Florida, United States
Member since March 2017
Captain John Rivers has over 45 years of experience. After quitting the Marines, John decided to start his own charter company and has now been successfully guiding for 14 years. His first passion was Bass fishing, which later transformed into love for saltwater species: for John, there is nothing like hooking into a monster Snook and pulling him out of the Mangroves or chasing Redfish on the flats. His first ever saltwater fish was 30lb bull Redfish, which got him hooked for life. The Captain enjoys sharing his knowledge with his friends and clients, putting them on fish.
