I have been a Captain for 26 years. I was raised in Islamorada, (Florida Keys) which to date is the sport-fishing capital of the world. It was 1973 and my father was a Tournament Billfish and Private Charter Fishing Captain. He taught me to master the big bills, pelagics and all of the reef fish that crowded the endless reefs and ledges. I learned to become a professional fisherman at a very young age from my father and many legendary Islamorada I.G.F.A. Hall of Fame Captains.
After moving to Crystal River, over 20 years ago, I was First Mate, then later became Captain for the "The Apollo" owned by Apollo Deep Sea Fishing. She was a 32 ton, custom built headboat and our days averaged 25-45 miles off shore up to the 100 mile offshore snapper trips. My next job was Head of the Charter Fleet and Marine Division of "Fisherman's Paradise", a custom 380' floating 5 star resort. Now, after becoming an “old salt”, it was time to once again return to my roots of giving personalized service and making lifetime memories so I started Scarfish Charters. If you've been with us before, we welcome you back..if you haven't..come aboard..(and bring a good sized fish cooler)!
