Captain Justin is a true native to South Florida , growing up fishing inshore and offshore all over Florida and growing up in the Florida keys. The challenges among a pressured coast there has given him such diversity in fishing all over.
In 2007 at the age of 18, I decided to enter my first Redfish tournament, and that served as my launching pad to realizing a childhood dream. In 2011, I took first place in the New Smyrna Beach Redfish-Trout Tournament and in 2012 I won my first major redfish tournament in Titusville, Florida.
As my pro fishing career has progressed I have been fortunate to have achieved first place finishes and other top finishes in the Inshore Fishing Association events, the Bossman Redfish Series, Florida Pro Redfish Tour and in my first Elite Redfish Series, head to head, one pro per boat event, I qualified for the 2016 season with a top 12 finish. In 2017 I won 2 major IFA redfish tournaments. I have also fished several charity events for local foundations.
Most of the tournaments I have won have been here in Louisiana, and for some reason I never wanted to leave. I love the culture and most of all the nice people and delicious food ! So after much thought I decided to move here 8 years ago and have been full time guiding since !
I hope to see you all on the water soon,
Captain Justin Collison
