About the Captain

Sam Atwell
Vero Beach, Florida, United States
Member since May 2017
Captain Sam has fished the local waters from his childhood, learning about all the different fishing techniques and mastering inshore fishing. When he went to the Florida State University in Tallahassee, he made sure he spent as much time on the Gulf waters catching big game fish. Captain Sam has now returned to Vero Beach and started his charter business in order to share his passion with fellow anglers and teach the ones who want to learn everything he had learnedover the years.
