About Your Guide

Captain Zach is an avid angler who has fished Tampa Bay constantly for the last 18 years. His love for fishing began with freshwater fishing for Bass and Catfish with his father in Kentucky and Indiana. Living waterfront as soon as he moved to Tampa, his passion for saltwater fishing soon surpassed all others! He got a john boat at the age of 14 and hasn’t looked back since. Captain Zach has always been an outdoorsman, learning as much as he could about all different species as a child. By now, he's accomplished many of his personal fishing goals and loves to share his passion with others, teaching them the ins and outs of the sport. He has competed in many local tournaments and coordinated with researchers about the habits of local fishes. Captain Zach’s countless hours on the water have allowed him to find the best fish and spots in the Bay. A trip with Captain Zach will be a blast for everyone, whether you're an experienced angler or just learning the ropes!
