About Your Guide

Captain Justin

Certified Damn Good Guide
Independent Guide
Captain Justin is a United States Coast Guard licensed Captain, he moved to the Fort Lauderdale area from Northwest Indiana in 2017 leaving behind a successful steelhead fishing guide operation for over a decade. He cut his teeth targeting freshwater apex predators in skinny waters where you have to deal with endless trees and undergrowth. His skill with casting flies through, around or under vegetation adapted well to the urban fishing jungle of South Florida. Justin has spent countless hours on the water. Some guys have the knack for knowing where fish will stage to ambush their next meal and how to trigger bites. He is one of those guys.

You will see Justin drive right up to spots, and he will put you on fish in minutes. The ability to find the right stretches of water to target is a huge advantage. When you come to fish with him, you'll also get to learn how to fish for peacock bass in Florida from land or boat. From fishing canals and small lakes. Justin will demonstrate his casting techniques, and he will work with you. From the flies he prefers, his gear, rods, reels, lines, and leaders, he will share with you what works. Knowing a little more is all the edge you need to get on fish, and enjoy your adventure.

Fishing with Captain Justin is an experience you'll enjoy for he's very knowledgeable, and his passion for guiding is very evident after you land a fish, and see the excitement he has for you. Not to mention he's also so much fun, and a great company on the water.

Let Captain Justin guide you, and show you a day of great fishing, one you won't forget for a long time.

Captain Justin was awesome. He made every effort to make the day a memorable experience for my husband and my sons. They caught lots of fish and thoroughly enjoyed the iguana hunt. The guys also enjoyed a delicious lunch cooked by the captain himself. They look forward to scheduling another trip with Justin and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun day of fishing and/or iguana hunting.

We met Justin took us less than an hour. We did the cast and blast combo we fished first and then hunted second had a blast on both parts. Got over a half a dozen nice iguanas and at least 5 different species of fish one being peacock bass(my favorite). I’m very thankful to Justin for guiding us and I would definitely recommend booking him. Me and my girlfriend will be back.

Incredible Experience! Before I even describe the trip, let me start by highlighting that Justin reached out a few weeks before to get a sense of us and our expectations, along with tips on what to bring and expect. A few days before the trip, he provided us with weather updates and possible alternatives just in case the weather did not cooperate, which was huge given we were traveling from out of town. When we arrived, all the equipment was provided and provided us with all the instructions needed. We even got a little shooting practice to get our confidence up. The rest of the day was a blast, he knew all the best places to look, and we bagged 12 iguanas. Lastly, my son is 12 and familiar with a rifle but has yet to become an expert... Justin was great with helping and talking him through shooting off a boat and this environment; sometimes, you don't have the best patience, so his instruction was priceless. It was a great guide and overall experience, and I highly recommend it. We will be booking him for more next time we are back down.

Captain Justin was awesome. Caught 9 different fish species with him during our fishing part of the trip. He knew exactly where to cast,what to cast, and how to work the fishing pole. The hunt part was amazing as well. Got 12 Iguanas, one being around 41 inches. Justin has the best eyes when it comes to spotting them. He’d point one out while going full speed in the boat. it would take us...
