Captain
Zach Timmons

Member since July 2015 St. Augustine, United States
Background
I am a fourth generation charter boat captain who grew up on fishing boats and I've never stopped loving it. I like to troll for striking fish and also love to bottom fish for reef species. I tend to prefer lighter tackle for more of a fair fight but when it's necessary, I'll pull out the big guns! I'm open to trying other peoples' favorite styles and methods as well because in this line of work if you aren't trying new things and experimenting, then you won't go too far!
