Background
Captain Scooter was born and raised on and around the waters of Pensacola and he loves nothing more than to share his 20 plus years of knowledge with his clients. "At a very early age, I knew this is what I wanted to do and never looked back." He's fished commercially and has taken part in many tournaments over the years. The experience in almost every different type of fishing over his career thus far definitely helps in his ability to put his customers on fish consistently. So let Capt. Scooter take you on a fishing adventure. You won't be disappointed!
Techniques
Our fishing techniques differ depending on the time of year and what we are targeting. But my preferred method for most of my charters would be live bait but we lure fish troll and bottom fish as well. We do both inshore and offshore fishing so we do use a lot of different styles of fishing. whatever's working best at the time for what species of fish we are targeting is what we will be doing. From slow trolling live hardtails for big kings to live shrimp for trout and reds we've got it covered!
