About Captain John
I am Captain John Pfeiffer. I have been a licensed and U. S. Coast Guard-certified Charter Captain for more than thirty Years. I have fished from New England to Key West, from the Bahamas to the Gulf of Mexico…and everywhere in between. Whether we targeted bluewater pelagics like Giant Tunas, Blue Marlin, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi or skinny water species like Redfish, Snook and Tarpon, I never failed to keep rods bent, camera shutters clicking and clients with big, toothy grins. Nearly 20 years ago, I discovered the unmatched and untouched beauty of southwest Florida, especially the 10,000 Islands, and never looked back.
My passion is to stalk Snook and Redfish in shallow water (less than two feet) on light tackle – I specialize in light tackle and fly fishing. Nothing tests your skill and will quite like a “Bull Red” charging over an oyster bed in 8 inches of water. This is saltwater angling at it’s best…and there’s no middle man. Let me show you the way.
I can tailor a trip to target the species of your choosing. I can also customize the trip to align with your angling skills, whether you’re chasing a world record on fly or just starting out with a spinning rod.
Most of all, I want to protect the future of our sport. I encourage clients to bring their kids fishing with me. Nothing is more rewarding the watching a child catch the fishing bug and knowing that I had a hand in that.
Even though I’m passionate about angling, I want you to enjoy a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. These are such awe-inspiring natural surroundings and I want you enjoy and experience what has kept me here for nearly 20 years.
