Leon Hampton

Member since September 2015 Crystal River, United States
Background
Captain Leon has fished his entire life and dreamed about the waters being his desk some day. In 2014, in order to pursue his lifelong dream, Captain Leon became a licensed charter captain. He loves showing guests his world of fishing and teaching them new things. Captain Leon is also a passionate hunter.
Techniques
With hunting and fishing you really have to pay attention to what your going out to catch/bag. Red fishing is my passion but I will throw a line at anything in the water. We also offer scalloping trips when in season. I use the best in fishing equipment and tackle. Hunting on the other hand, the scenery is just as beautiful as the water. With our company we do duck hunts, gator hunts and turkey hunts all when in season. We either supply the guns and ammunition or you can bring your own.
