It doesn't matter whether it's a child's first time cruising alongside dolphins on Anna Maria Island, a gulf sunset shared with good people, or the catch of a lifetime, it's the smiles of others that Captain Scott cherishes most.
Having graduated with a degree in English Literature, Scott has traveled and studied internationally, meeting plenty of amazing people along the way. It's their stories and the laughs shared that defines Scott's passions: constantly learning and making others smile.
Always an avid fisherman, Scott decided to "retire" from the corporate world and chase fish instead. He started guiding out west during the summers in Montana and Wyoming for trout on fly rods before the siren song of saltwater fishing lured him to Anna Maria Island full-time. The thrill of hooking up to a fish of his own is dwarfed only by the thrill he has helping others land one of their own. But before you think he has it made, keep in mind that he's a Cleveland Browns fan--which accounts for most of his stress these days.
