Jupiter, United States

Background
I have been fishing since I could walk. My Dad got me hooked at a young age. The chase of a good day on the water never gets old. Fishing is a sport that involves fellowship and action. I enjoy meeting new people and making memories with my customers. Once I am out, sometimes I don't want to go in! Fishing is my life. I am blessed to do this full time. Chapman Sea School Graduate: 50 Ton Master Captain.
Techniques
Kite fishing the ledges of Jupiter for Sailfish, Kingfish, Dolphin, and Wahoo is my favorite trip. The watching the splash of a game fish eat a live bait on the surface never gets old. Trolling is also productive at times, the sound of a reel screaming after a strike is music to my ears. Drifting the edge with lite spinning gear is also a fun trip. Inshore trips are good on rough weather days.

We booked Capt Scott and the boat Gettin Lucky on Friday 11/20/15. Despite 3-4ft swells and some chop Capt Scott managed to find us some fish. We caught a ton of fish with constant action. Our keepers included a 10 lb Dolphin/Mahi Mahi, several yellowtail and a few species of snapper. Capt Scott was professional and courteous, he knew the waters very well and we had a great time. I will definitely book another charter with Scott on my next visit to the West Palm/ Jupiter area.

The fishing was excellent and Captain Scott was an Outstanding guide and better yet, understands how to fish with kids.  I have 3 children between ages 8-13.  I explained to Scott I wanted to fish for quantity so as to keep my kids busy. After 20 minutes he was able to see what each of children’s needs were when fishing.  Who needed help reeling in the big ones, who wanted to talk, showed them how to bait the hooks and explained what we were catching.  My kids said it was the best trip ever!!  To me Charters are about customer service and Scott was great.  And it didn’t hurt that we caught lots of fish :) King Mackerel, Dolphin, Snapper, Yellowtail, Bonita, and a few sharks.  My family had such a good time we booked a second trip 3 days later.  If your looking to take the family out, I highly suggest Scott and Getting Lucky!
