Captain Alan Spangler

My passion for fishing began when I was a child. I played baseball throughout the week and always looked forward to fishing on the weekends with my Dad. As I got older my love for fishing grew. My first job was working at a local bait and tackle shop. I then saved up enough money for my first boat in high school. I started guiding family and friends to catch fish and I knew from that point I wanted to pursue my own business as a charter captain. I took classes to earn my masters captain’s license.

Since then, I have been very fortunate with my business. Every day I look forward to sharing my passion with my customers and in the process we create memories that will last a lifetime.

I specialize in sightseeing and inshore fishing charters. Generally we use live bait for the inshore fishing trips. We will be targeting Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Goliath Grouper and many other species. Fishing techniques will vary throughout the year but there is always constant action.
