Captain Morgan has had the privilege of guiding both Presidents Bush 41 and 43, Governor Jeb Bush, actors, athletes, and families who have become friends. "I enjoy meeting new people and hope they see how thankful I am to be able to do what I love. I want all my clients to enjoy their time on my boat, not just catching fish but also enjoying the beauty of the waters."

 

In addition to fishing charters in which target gamefish are the name of the game (Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Speckled Trout), Captain Morgan offers these fun, family-friendly trips in the Boca Grande, Port Charlotte, Pine Island, Englewood, Gasparilla, Punta Gorda, Cape Haze areas:

  • Bird Watching
  • Nature Tours
  • Sight Seeing
  • Sea Shell Excursions
  • Photography Trips

"Being a Captain is about more than just catching fish, it’s about helping people enjoy their time on the water, sharing knowledge of the water, and teaching ways to protect what we’ve been given. I am careful to take care of what Mother Nature has given us, and I love helping kids learn to respect the sea, just as I was taught growing up as a youth."

My Grandfather owned a commercial fish house when I was young, and that led to me loving the water. Working for Bayard Sharp under Captain Phil O’Bannon developed my passion for guiding.

What is your favorite fish to catch? What fish do you primarily fish for?

Nothing is quite as exciting as sight fishing big Tarpon, although I also love Snook fishing. These two are my primary targets, along with Redfish and Trout.

Would you share with our readers one of your fishing adventures?

We were fishing Tarpon in late July down in Pine Island and the fish were cruising a channel edge of a shallow flat. When a 120 pounder ate the fly, he greyhounded right up on the flat and beached himself. We had to get out and pull him back to deep water.

What is the most commonly asked question you get from potential clients?

Most clients want to know how the fish are biting and if the weather will be good.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?

I take pride in being an all-around fisherman and respect the waters that I fish. From beginners to experienced anglers, I try to make sure everyone enjoys the trip.

Associating with companies such as True Flies, Tibor, etc., that support conservation efforts is important to me.
