Captain
Anthony Minio

Member since October 2018 Punta Gorda, United States
Background
I have lived and worked on the water my entire life, but fishing was always a passion. I decided to make my passion my career and make a living out of it. I've been a captain for 10 years, and I know how to organize a fishing trip that will be fun and productive for everyone on the boat. I also run specialized and technical expeditions, so there's something for every level.
Techniques
I like a lot of different styles of fishing from super shallow sight fishing for tailing redfish to deep dredging bridges for giant snook or cruising the shoals looking for tarpon and cobia. Charlotte harbor has so many options.
