Captain David White:
David grew up in central Illinois, where his family owned a bait and tackle store on the Vermillion river. Fishing is in his blood! His summers were spent counting night crawlers and fishing the local ponds, lakes, and rivers.
He moved to Anna Maria Island at 19 and began his quest for saltwater game fish. He's been fishing the waters of Tampa Bay, Anna Maria, Sarasota Bay & the Gulf of Mexico ever since. David has a passion for fishing and loves to share his knowledge of each species and what it takes to land that dream fish!
Captain David White has been guiding in the Tampa Bay area inshore, offshore, and fly for about 7 years. Spending over 300 days on the water has enabled him to know the patterns and habits of all of the area's game fish. Growing up in the service industry has helped him learn to deal with every possible client and to help ensure their needs are met to the best of his ability given the conditions and circumstances that may arise.
Captain Johnny Mattay:
Captain Johnny is a local, full time fishing guide. Born and raised on Anna Maria Island, being drawn to the water and thrill of catching fish, he found his passion as a kid fishing every day and has explored the local waters his entire life. Immediately after graduating high school, Johnny successfully completed Sea School and all other requirements to become a licensed captain and started his own charter business. Captain Johnny has a passion to take anyone fishing from novice to professional and truly enjoys putting them on fish, as well as making the experience one they will never forget! He is a USCG Licensed Captain and is fully insured by Charter Lakes Marine Insurance.
