Captain Kirk Pristas is an avid Outdoorsman and Conservationist who began fishing the Gulf of Mexico since age ten. Captain Kirk is a native Floridian who grew up on the bay in Lynn Haven which enabled him to experience the many opportunities our great area has to offer. Whether it’s hunting for Sambar Deer on St. Vincent Island, diving for Spiny and Shovelnose Lobster, Alligator hunting, fishing for Tuna and Marlin out in the Gulf or just floundering in the bay, Capt. Kirk has done it all in the local area. After spending nine years in the Air Force with numerous deployments to the Middle East, Capt. Kirk decided to honorably separate from active duty and return to his native roots. This enabled him to pursue his passion for fishing and the outdoors while being able to show others what unbelievable outdoor experiences our area has to offer. Capt. Kirk enjoys almost every kind of fishing and always strives to provide the best possible trip that will make memories!
