Captain
Zac Tapp

Member since February 2017 Bradenton, United States
Background
We love the water and helping people discover what real Florida fishing is all about. Fishing with active duty and former military personnel is a great opportunity for us and they always receive special treatment on our boats. We have honed our skills as private and charter captains on both the east coast and west coast of Florida as well as the Bahamas. We like the west coast best.
Techniques
Generally, we fish offshore because that is where the fun and adventure is. We try to learn about our clients' experiences so that we can show them something new. Rarely do we come back without a great story to tell about the day's activity.
