Start your fish story today with The Fish Hunter charters. Captain Scott Pokrass invites everyone to come fish with him, no matter your skill level. He is happy to teach the less experienced anglers and make sure everyone has a great day out with him

Hop on board his 22’ Dargel boat, fresh on the water in 2017. This beautiful boat has a 200 HP Suzuki engine and full navigational and safety equipment. The fishfinder, coupled with Capt. Scott’s extensive knowledge of the area, will have you on top of the fish before you know it.

Fish on the menu include Red Fish, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Flounder. Don’t forget to bring a cooler with you to take them home in.

You’ll use a range of techniques to target these species, including spinning, popping, drift fishing, and bottom fishing. For those new to fishing, Capt. Scott will show you the ropes and the tricks of the trade so you can have a great time on the water and fill your cooler.

There is no minimum age for children and life vests are provided. Let Capt. Scott show them why fishing is a tried and true pastime that they can enjoy for the rest of their life.

You’ll need to bring a few bits along with you on the day. The most vital thing is a fishing license – you won’t be able to fish without it. You are welcome to bring along food and drink.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Penn, Fenwick, and Berkley. This gear won’t let you down when you’re going after your dream catch. After the trip, the captain will fillet and bag your catch, ready for you to take home and eat. The hard part will be deciding how to cook it!

There is no better time to book. Have an unforgettable fishing adventure today with The Fish Hunter.

Captain Scott Pokrass became a captain simply because of his love of fishing! He started fishing these waters in 1980 and didn't stop even when he was working as a full time teacher. He enjoys taking everybody fishing, from kids on their first trip to more experienced anglers. He feels blessed to be doing this job and making his hobby into his profession. Fishing has always been a lifelong passion for him, as can be seen by the subject he teaches – Aquatic Science!. He has fished in California, Colorado, Virginia, and Canada.
