Captain Jeff Schneider
Captain Jeff Schneider was raised on the Texas coast where fishing was a part of life. Growing up the son of a professional bass fisherman, Jeff spent much of his time fishing with his father and learning all he could about fish and how to catch them.

Jeff is a saltwater fishing guide and can be found 100 miles offshore chasing bill fish and tuna to the backwaters fishing from his SUP stalking redfish. Jeff has the knowledge and equipment to put you on the fish. Doing so with a great attitude and infectious passion for the sport.

Jeff has been on the water all his life. When he didn't have a boat he honed his skills for fishing from land and paddle vessels. Now that he has several vessels in the fleet you will still occasionally find him chasing big fish from a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP). From blue water to backwater as long as we're in the salt!

When Capt. Jeff wasn’t fishing for big largemouth Bass, he was honing his saltwater skills stalking Redfish on the flats and marshes. Jeff’s other love was motorcycles and he excelled at not only riding but performing death defying stunts. He pursued his riding to the point where he became sponsored by several international companies including Harley Davidson and Icon. He started what quickly became one of the nation’s most popular traveling motorcycle stunt teams, and traveled around the nation entertaining crowds.

When the grind of living on the road became too much, Jeff decided to move to Tarpon Springs, Florida to pursue his other passion of fishing and to take his skills to a new level. Captain Jeff quickly attained his Coast Guard Captains License and spent every free second on the water. He expanded his local knowledge by working as a mate, and fishing with some of the area’s top guides. He has also gained the respect of some of Florida’s finest guides for his ability to locate and catch trophy fish. His passion for fishing is infectious and his personality makes him an ideal captain for the novice and seasoned angler alike. He is a highly motivated and competitive fishing guide and tournament angler. Jeff is a regular on many tournament trails, and fishes year round. Spending April - Oct in Mexico Beach FL and the winter months fishing the west coast from Tampa to the Key West.
