Introducing Captain ..
Captain of Blu Sushi Fishing is another master of his craft. Capt. specializes in offshore fishing as well as reef and wreck fishing, and can handle novice to expert clients or anything in-between! His experience has taken him throughout the Florida Keys, East Coast of the Florida, and the Bahamas, so just about any technique used to catch fish today he is extremely well versed on. He enjoys teaching customers how to get it done which allows for a much more “hands on” fishing experience.
