Background
"It's simple. I love to fish." The words of Captain John Baar couldn't be more appropriate - he can't think of a better way to spend his time than being out on the water catching fish and seeing the smiles on other people's faces as they reel in a big catch. A Florida local, he has been fishing and diving the local waters from a very young age, giving him an intimate knowledge of the area's sea life. An excellent instructor, he enjoys teaching people the techniques he has learned over the years and specializes in introducing people to new ways of catching fish.
Techniques
I employ all tactics and techniques that result in catching fish.

Went fishing on Monday, January 11, 2016

JP and Casey were great! Water was a little rough and windy but they really made it a good time on the water. Casey was very informative and made us laugh.  Caught plenty of fish and had a great time for the 1/2 day charter. Followed Casey’s advice and took our catch to Lazy Days and had an amazing dinner! Thanks for a great day.
