For those anglers looking for a different paddling experience we highly suggest considering the Stand Up Paddle Board option that Capt. Casey Males offers our guests.  Capt. Casey has been a long time supporter of our company and his unique “one of a kind service” has quickly become a fan favorite with our customers.  

Capt. Casey’s specialties include stalking tailing Redfish and Snook in ankle deep water as well targeting Largemouth Bass and Bluegill on some of the Nature Coast’s inland lakes and rivers all from his Live Watersports paddle crafts.  As an avid fly angler and custom fly tier, Casey also has the knowledge and expertise to make sure our fly anglers are properly outfitted and well taken care of.

So if you’re looking to get up and standup during your paddle session think about giving Capt. Casey’s paddle board trips a try.
