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.

A few years later, Captain Gil took matters into his own hands and started his own charter service, running out of Delaware and eventually Port Saint Lucie and Fort Pierce, Florida. He put the knowledge that he had learned over the years to good use, and has become one of the best on the East Coast of the United States. Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin and Wahoo are what he knows and he excels in catching these fish. Captain Gil is one of the most aggressive and competitive fishermen on the East Coast of Florida, and he ensures that his clients have enjoyable trips and catch a bunch!

Captain Gil is an expert when it comes to exciting offshore fishing, and on this trip you can target a wide variety of top sportfish species, including Blackfin Tuna, Bonito, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi!

It was a great day of fishing. We caught around 40 fish today. The captain was great and very knowledgeable. I will definitely be booking another trip with him.

Captain Gill was top notch. He personally cares about catching fish. Not a captain that just want to put his time in. I would/will go fishing with him again. Also his mate Hunter was great. He was on his game and socialable at the same time. Don’t hesitate book this charter.

We had a very positive experience with Cap’n Gil. This Man and Mate have a passion for fishing and it is very obvious. We fished in very challenging Summer conditions along with a New Moon, yet we were the only boat at the docks to have quality fish. I will fish with him again given the opportunity.

We caught a ton of fish and had a great time! It was filled with lots of laughs and fish being caught. It seemed like the fish were just jumping into the boat with the amount we caught!! 100% recommend this charter for anyone wanting to catch fish!!

My son was thrilled to catch a very large Mahi on his first ever charter it was his dream come true . 6 year old grandson caught a smaller Mahi and was so happy he had talked about catching a Mahi for so long . Capt Gil and his Mate Hunter did a great job and were very knowledgeable . They work very hard to ensure you have a great experience .
