Redfish, Sea Trout, Snook, Tarpon and Black Drum are the usual target's for Captain Tony. But, If it bites we will try and catch it!!
Capt. Tony started fishing the Northern California ponds and lakes at a very young age. At 16 years old I started to bow hunt wild hogs and blacktail deer. The rush of having a 300lb russian boar at 15 yards is just like having 100 20-50lb Bull redfish tailing 30 feet off the bow of my boat!!!
The spot and stalk technique used bow hunting crossed over into shallow water fishing perfectly. Poling silently along looking for subtle signs that a fish is there. You will get buck fever at the sight of a 300 40lb redfish tailing right in front of the boat unspooked or a Gator trout sitting in a sand spot un- aware of our presence!! But settle down and make the cast and FISH ON!!
It's more than a passion it's an obsession.
