Background
As a lifelong resident of South Florida, Captain Biggs has fished all of Florida's waters: the Atlantic all the way up to Jacksonville, and the Gulf all the way to Pensacola. Nowhere has his passion for fishing, taking people fishing, and teaching people to fish been satisfied as in the Florida Keys and "The Sportsfishing Capital of the World" - Islamorada. After careers in property management and television production, Captain Biggs decided to hang up the suit and tie and get paid for what he's done all his life: take people fishing. Like all others, Captain Biggs started his career on the deck learning to be a good mate, and over the years earned his six pack license, and then worked on the bigger boats to earn his 100 Ton license. ​A successful fishing trip has a lot to do with a good mate, and the best mates are the "freelance" mates who fish with all the best captains. Captain Biggs utilizes a small core of these freelancers who have shown the same passion for their customers.
Techniques
Captain Biggs and crew will create a memorable and pleasurable fishing experience for you onboard the "BLUE MANA". Whether you are a seasoned angler or a novice. As we all know, kids are the most important group to teach and take fishing. Captain Biggs is a well known and very involved member of the community, is a U.S. Marine from the end of the Vietnam Era and is the Official liaison to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves 'Toys for Tots' program for the entire Florida Keys.​ ​ Captain Biggs is an avid member of the Motorcycle community and participates in a host of Motorcycling charity events, so riders will find a kindred spirit in Captain Biggs

Even though gin clear water makes for a tougher bite on the reef, you folks got the hang of it pretty quick. Hope Ken lived up to his cooking promises.

Went fishing on Friday, July 22, 2016

Capt. Biggs and Justin were excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.  Capt Biggs was very responsive and helpful in booking the trip details. The boat was spacious and equipped for all kinds of fishing.  Capt. Biggs is in the process of upgrading the boat to allow handicapped passengers/veterans - very cool project, but no AC as the generator wasn’t back - not a big deal as a rain the day before had cooled it down a bit. Unfortunately, we chose a day after 2 clear nights and a full bright moon - which means the fish feed at night and aren’t hungry during the day. We found several large balls of yellowtail snapper but only got 3 legal ones and a few other miscellaneous fish. But the captain tried everything and gave us an extra hour and a half to try trolling after reef fishing. It was a fun day and I’d recommend Capt Biggs and the Blue Mana for any recreational fishermen.  Thanks!
