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.

"I have gone on fishing charters all my life and this was hands down the best inshore trip I’ve ever been on. Can’t say enough about how hard the captain worked to put us on the fish. We went on a 4 hour fishing charter for snook, redfish, trout, and whatever else would bite and came home with a cooler full of trout and caught a ton of snook and redfish! We will be back for sure, best fishing charter in Palmetto, Florida."

"Great captain with years of experience of navigating and fishing the waters. We went out with him and caught a tons of fish and he was very patient with my children. Definitely recommend to others."
Brian L.
"I 💯 percent recommend going on a fishing charter with Carbon Cat, if you are around Palmetto or the Manatee County area they will put you on a ton of fish! Captain Justin doesn’t just catch fish but makes it a blast to fish with him! If you want tarpon, snook, trout, flounder, redfish, snapper, sharks give him a call!"
