Captain Jarett Ortenzo

Captain Jarrett Ortenzo has been in love with fishing and the outdoors as a whole since he was a small child.  He grew up with a fishing pole in his hand, and has fished in many areas across the country in both fresh and salt water.  Captain Jarrett is our favorite “goof ball” and is always quick with a joke.  If you are around Jarrett, odds are you are laughing and having a good time.  Captain Jarrett is a former U.S. Marine who served from 2004-2009, including 2 deployments to Iraq.  These days Captain Jarrett captains our 24’ Cape Horn “One Shot”, and takes great pleasure in introducing people to salt water fishing.  He’s a great all around Captain, and is particularly good with kids on his boat.  Fishing with Jarrett is always going to be both fun and productive!

Yellowfin Tuna

The yellowfin tuna is among the larger tuna species, reaching weights over 400 lb, but is significantly smaller than the Atlantic and Pacific bluefin tunas, which can reach over 990 lb, and slightly smaller than the bigeye tuna and the southern bluefin tuna.


The Mahi-Mahi, or common dolphinfish, is a surface-dwelling ray-finned fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical and subtropical waters worldwide. Mahi-Mahi can be caught year round with our Big Game charters!

Blue and White Marlin

A marlin has an elongated body, a spear-like snout or bill, and a long, rigid dorsal fin which extends forward to form a crest. Its common name is thought to derive from its resemblance to a sailor’s marlinspike. Marlin can be caught between May through November with our charters!.


Wahoo is best known to sports fishermen, as its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish. Wahoo have been recorded at up to 8 ft 2 in. in length, and weighing up to 183 lb. Wahoo can swim up to 60 mph. They are some of the fastest fish in the sea.

Triggerfish are about 40 species of often brightly colored fishes of the family Balistidae. They inhabit tropical and subtropical oceans throughout the world.
