Captain Jesse is masterfully trained in all types of fishing. He has been fishing the Gulf Coast since he was a little boy, having grown up right on the Ochlockonee Bay, just south of Tallahassee.

He loves the fast paced excitement of bottom fishing. He loves to troll blue water for wahoo & dorado. He has been going down to the Keys during lobster mini season for the past 15 years. He also loves scalloping the Bay down near Port St. Joe. Captain Jesse's love and passion for fishing has taken him far and wide but the Gulf Coast has always been his favorite place to fish. 

Captain Jesse is married to his beautiful wife Stacy of 10 years and she is a culinary genius who loves creating mouthwatering dishes from the fish he brings home.

Chris has grown up local to the Gulf Coast and has fished both the bay and along the beautiful emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. He spends most of his time pier fishing and prefers to catch pelagic species like King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish & Blackfin tuna. His favorite fish to catch and fight is the Tarpon.

"Hooking a tarpon will definitely make you rethink your decision to try to catch one after fighting it for awhile, but once you beach the fish, it's one of the best feelings in the world!"
