About Your Guide

Captain Matt: Owner, captain, fishing expert, and veteran Matt re-established his charter business in 2016. Matt operated local inshore and offshore charters for 10 years in Sarasota, FL before the BP oil spill. After the devastating spill, he left the industry to join the Army and serve our country. Matt completed a tour overseas and safely returned home to pursue his lifelong dream and passion! Matt gained his high level of expertise, professionalism, and cleanliness via 20 years of experience operating charters on his boats and running yachts for high-profile owners. While Blue Marlins are his favorite fish to catch, Snook and Tarpon give him the adrenaline-pumping action that made him fall in love with Sport Fishing!
