Captain Justin

Head Captain

For me growing up in the Tampa Bay Area learning to navigate and fish my surrounding waters is what I was meant to do. Day or night I would go boating and catch fish. Even when the fish aren’t biting, I love every moment on the water. The challenge to catch my target species with the excitement felt, when I hook up and land that fish cannot be beat.  As each year passes, I only want to get better and better. After all these years this Florida Gulf Coast fishery still humbles me. Every trip is truly unique. I know the best gear I can afford is crucial and the techniques change with the conditions I encounter each trip.  Sharing these days and special moments with my friends is all I want to do. With over 30 years of boating and fishing experience, whether it’s cruising around or fishing the flats to offshore I know this is where I belong. To my delight now I can share these memorable experiences with people who visit from all around the world.

"For Fun in the Sun on the boat with Family/Friends or Fishing Charters Carbon Cat Charters is where it's at. PURRfection is a beautiful, clean and comfortable boat equipped with all that you need to include an Amazing Captain. Justin provides you with phenomenal customer service. He is prompt, and very helpful with any questions you may have. He is very mindful about everyone's safety and super knowledgeable about boats, the ocean, fishing, basically anything to do with being on the water and on a boat. Pleasant demeanor. You will NOT be disappointed. "
"Amazing and spacious boat. Because it's a catamaran, it's very smooth in any conditions. Justin is a seasoned and knowledgeable captain. I would highly recommend Carbon Cat Charters to anyone in the Anna Maria Island or surrounding area."
"Captain Justin took me and several buddies on an epic fishing trip. We caught a monster Wahoo and several Tuna. I definitely recommend. The boat is amazing! I have been on several big boats but none are as comfortable as his Hammercat. Coming back the wind picked up and we were in 3-4’ waves and it took it like nothing. He called it Meow mix! If you want to catch big fish on a phenomenal boat this is the only charter I would take."
