About Your Guide

Captain Gil has been on the water since the day he could walk. He started his career at the age of 14, working as a mate on the waters of the Delaware Bay fishing for Trout, Stripers and Flounder. However, soon the blue water called his name and he began working as a mate on the offshore canyon boats running out of Indian River Inlet. He soaked in the vast knowledge of some of the best captains on the East Coast while chasing Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and Swordfish.

Capt. Gil and his mate Hunter provided an excellent day for our group. They worked hard to put us on fish and for us to have an enjoyable experience. It is highly recommended for anyone - novice or pro alike - to fish with Capt Gil and Hunter.
