Guided by Scott Brown
Captain Scott is committed to freeing you of the everyday grind and sharing with you what these waters mean to him. He is not only is a devoted steward of our natural resources, but a big proponent for future angler development. He wants to educate people on the proper ways to bring kids fishing, keeping them engaged in the sport, and emphasize fishing etiquette while practicing sustainability. To Scott, being out on the water sharing his passion and educating others is exactly where he wants to be. He recently has been commended for his selfless devotion to the special operations community for creating a 501C3 (non profit) called Valiant Traditions. Its main goal is to find wounded warriors and gold star family members, and take them on fully funded guided fishing trips. Through hunting and fishing, he hopes to spiritually and mentally heal our service members that have sacrificed life and limb for our country. At the end of the day, he believes that if we secure the future of our outdoors through the young anglers of today, they will go forth into the future and be the proper custodians our fisheries need. Captain Scott is an active duty service member in our Nation's armed forces, and thus only runs trips on the weekends.
Night fishing is a great alternative when days are super hot and the right tide ends up being in the evening or night. Live baiting for Tarpon and redfish will often be your go-to depending on when the tides and moon line up. Includes fishing license, all gear and equipment. All you need to do is show up on time, with a rain jacket (just in case), and whatever you want to eat and drink, and be ready to fish! Read More
Sight fishing in the panhandle is an exhilarating experience that should be on any angler's bucket list! Whether you're a seasoned pro or a novice, it's a great way to fish and provides a unique challenge! The opportunity to see your "prey "before casting your line is an entirely different experience from blind casting, and it requires both speed and accuracy to be successful. On this trip with Captain Scott, you'll be heading out to chase all the panhandle classics: Redfish, jack cravalle, tarpon. To make the most of your trip, it's important to come prepared. Captain Scott will provide the gear and the expertise, but it's recommended that you practice your cast before coming down. There's nothing worse than hearing "Tarpon, eleven o'clock!" and not being able to successfully place the fly or the lure. Bring your "A game" and a great attitude, as sight fishing requires focus and perseverance. The "double haul" technique is especially useful in these conditions, as it allows for longer and more accurate casts. If you're new to fishing or bringing someone who is, let your guide know ahead of time so they can tailor the trip to your skill level. Overall, a sight fishing the panhandle is an unforgettable experience that combines the beauty of the Florida with the thrill of the chase. With the right preparation and a little luck, you'll have the opportunity to land some of the most sought-after game fish in the world. So bring your gear, your enthusiasm, and your sense of adventure, and get ready for an incredible day on the water! Read More

Scott is an amazing guide. Puts you on the fish and exposes you to some authentic lower keys fishing.
My wife and I have fished with Scott multiple times in Key West. We can't recommend him enough. He knows where the fish are no matter what time of the year it is. Book a trip with him, you won't be disappointed
Capt Scott Brown is a great guy to fish with. He knows his water, operates safely and provides a really fun day of fishing for an expert or someone who has never picked up a rod. Highly recommended. Tom Rowland - Saltwater Experience TV
