Captain Gabriel Smeby
fishing the florida panhandle since 2017
It all started as conversation around the dinner table. Gabe & Alicia Smeby had been toying with the idea of opening a charter business of their own. Gabriel is a 4th generation boat captain and fisherman to the Florida Panhandle of Norweigian descent. His love for fishing began at a very young age working as a deckhand alongside his father, Mike for his fishing charter business. If you ask around these parts, the Smeby's are well known for their great fishing ability and love of the local waters. Gabe's love and passion for fishing was the fire they needed to jump start the business. Alicia has been fishing with Gabe since they first met in 2011. Captain Ryan Hugghins joined the team to run the boat as Captain in 2017 and has been pleasing our customers ever since. He is a seasoned fisherman to the Florida Panhandle since 2006 and has been monumental in helping to build our business. Our team shares the common belief that fishing always makes for a great time and amazing memories.
