Background
Capt. Damon Santelli runs fishing trips out of the rich Florida Keys. Damon spent a decade working as a commercial fisherman in the Key West.

He now has a fleet of boats and along with his team takes out numerous customers each year. The decision to leave behind his office career and become a captain proved to be the right one. Capt. Damon is patient and likes taking both novice anglers and seasoned fishermen out on the water. Damon has landed many commercial fishing records, such as 1232 lbs of Yellowtail Snapper. You don't want to miss a trip with him. It's going to be pure action!
