Capt. Jesse Karen grew up fishing with guides. He has seen the good the bad and the ugly.

When he started guiding full time in 2003 he vowed not to be the guide he and he father fished with all too often. Over the years he has learned so many techniques that allow him to find fish when all others cannot. He understands that fishing is a big investment and people are looking to have a fun time, not to be yelled at; as so many non-professionals do.

Capt. Gregg Stastny is just the guy you want piloting your vessel. With more than 20 years experience as a State of Florida Law Enforcement officer with Fish and Wildlife there are few people with the extensive knowledge of the local waters. He is enthusiastic and experienced in both inshore and near-offshore fish with a specialization based upon families and kids. As a father himself he enjoys teaching children the joy of fishing and strives to provide smiles all around!
