Captain
Skylar Wilks

Member since July 2017 Madeira Beach, United States
Background
For Captain Skylar Wilks, starting a fishing charter business was inevitable. Capt. Skylar is Florida born and raised and he grew up fishing. Capt. Skylar’s repertoire includes fishing the Indian River, Fort Myers, Sanibel, Pine Island, Tampa Bay, as well as trophy fishing from Clearwater to Sarasota.
Techniques
There is nothing quite like the rush of a fish smashing a topwater plug, but I also enjoy live bait fishing and throwing many different kinds of lures.
