Welcome to my website

I’m Captain Sam Cox:

I have lived in Florida most of my life. There is nowhere else I feel more comfortable than around the grass flats and the mangroves that comprise my offices.

Teaching is my passion. I have been teaching the sport of light tackle fishing since 2002 and I believe fishing should be fun!

l will take you on a back country excursion through Charlotte Harbor that you will never forget. I have a vast knowledge of this area, easy going demeanor, great patience, and a willingness to teach. You are guaranteed a fantastic day on the water.

Whether your goal is Tarpon, Red Fish, Snook, Speckled Sea Trout or Permit; I will guide you to wherever the fish are. I will coach you on techniques, and will help you select the appropriate live or artificial bait. There are plenty of opportunities for fishing on-your-own, but securing the services of an experienced guide will give you the most memorable fishing experience. Call or email Captain Sam to reserve your fishing trip.
