Captain
Tony Zain

Member since December 2014 Anna Maria, United States
Background
Captain Tony Zain first started fishing with his grandpa in Northern Michigan at the age of 5. After personally testing virtually all of the most celebrated hotspots in the US, he finally settled down in what he considers to be the ultimate fish heaven – the Tampa Bay waterways. Capt. Tony has had the privilege to guide fishing charters in many places throughout the country, and fishing in the bay area is by far his favorite!
Techniques
We like to utilize the lightest tackle possible to catch all of the game fish in the offshore waters of Miami. Drifting live and dead bait, bottom fishing and trolling are our preferred techniques. Light spinning rods are used for everything except trolling.
