Description

Whether you are an experienced charter fishing client or this is your first trip, you want a knowledgeable, experienced, enthusiastic, friendly, versatile, dependable, hard-working captain who is a joy to spend time with, who will keep you and your family comfortable and safe, and, of paramount importance, create a rich, fun experience for you. Your captain should be an expert at tailoring the fishing day to the prevailing conditions, and to your personal “wish list.” A good captain is like a premier chef, putting together the ingredients of the day to provide you, the client, with an exquisite masterpiece that you will remember the rest of your life.

Worldwide, the greatest captains are those with a passion for being out on the water and fishing. Their enthusiasm and sense of fun is infectious. They remember exactly what it’s like to be a young person perhaps seeing all of this for the very first time, or a hard-working adult who loves the ocean and catching fish, but who does something else to earn a living. For all of these clients, the captain holds the key to fun and success, using his expertise to unlock and unravel the confluences of variables and conditions, resulting in the white-hot excitement of sportfishing success…the silvery-blue flash of a big bull mahi mahi racing in for a sight-cast bait, the purple shadows of multiple sailfish charging into a glittering shower of ballyhoo, smashing strikes of blackfin tuna, the freight-train roar of the drag when a 500-pound tiger shark takes off for the horizon, the golden glow of monster yellowtail snappers rising in the chum slick, the neon-banded missile flight of an airborne wahoo skyrocketing a surface bait…and much more.

We can imagine our captain up in the tower, maneuvering artfully and signaling for the casters, backing down in an explosive white bulge of cresting seawater, and other spectacular things…but the majority of what preordains fishing success is intensive work and uncompromising criteria; relentless, methodical organization and preparation—topnotch tackle and maintenance, a perfectly serviced engine room, the finest-quality terminal tackle, elite standards of crew expertise, the very best baits, lures, and live well capacity and set-up, cutting-edge electronics, cockpit space and layout…and keeping all of this in perfect shape at all times. In other words, high standards and an incredible work ethic underlie the elite professional captains who are successful year in and year out. There’s nothing hit or miss about it, and it is a very small group at the pinnacle, or top echelon, of professional fishing success. And then, within this very small bunch, you have the captains who are still like kids in candy shop each morning as they steer offshore, having a ball each day since their passion is their profession…and keeping it relaxed and fun.

Capt. Steve Leopold is a firmly established member of this select club, the best of the best. His tournament record, his clientele, his day in and day out success, and his 22-year track record in the professional charter industry speak for themselves. The most important indicator of all, however—the bottom line—are those big happy smiles lighting up the faces of his clients as they step off the Yabba Dabba Doo each day in the glow of the late afternoon Florida Keys sunlight.
