Meet Captain John Minerva

Captain John, aka Captain Papa began fishing the waters of Long Island as a young boy. Mainly catching snappers from a borrowed row boat and his sailboat. From there it was blue fish, striped bass in Plum Gut and shark fishing off of Montauk.

When he moved to South Florida he once again started fishing the back waters. Species fished are red fish, snook, trout, pompano, sheepshead and more. The Gulf of Mexico near shore waters finds the Captain hunting Tarpon and hauling up grouper to name a few. A run to the east coast and he is fishing pelagic species like Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish and King Mackerel.

Captain John is an avid water enthusiast who paddles, sails, dives and fishes. U.S.C.G. Licensed and insured, and certified as a scuba diver. He is also a Yoga instructor certified in SUP (stand-up paddle board) yoga.
