Fishing with Captain Garett Hubbard

I am a proud Florida native who has been fishing and hunting in the Sunshine State ever since the late forties.I fished from my own boat when we did this on a very regular basis:I have hunted all over this big, beautiful, wonderful country of ours. My den looks like a zoo:In my early years I keep hearing about this almost mystical place know as the Florida Middle Grounds. Unfortunately the Grounds was far beyond my reach. In 1976 I decided to try an overnight serious fishing trip with Hubbard's Marina to the Grounds. The fishing was spectacular; I was hooked. I sold my boat and began fishing with Hubbard's. I have been doing so ever since.Unfortunately, due to age and failing health, I must give up what has been part of my life for so many years. But I still am passionate about sharing Our Florida with fellow sportsmen/women.

He and Tammy work hand-and-hand to make absolutely sure only the best meals are served:Black Friday, 2019, let's go:Seldom do we see this... Not a cloud in the Gulf:The weather is picture Florida perfect.But, unfortunately, a severe cold front is approaching.

Can Will once again hit the gold as he attempts:Our first-mate receives a standing ovation as he hits the GOLD!As the Florida Fisherman ll crosses under John's Pass Bridge the weather is:Talk about Florida Sunshine, Will is getting a sun-tan, end of November, inside the cabin:1:00 A. M. Saturday morning. Captain Garett has taken us deep into the very heart of the Florida Middle Grounds.A 'well-tanned' Will leads the...Thanks Captain; thanks Will... This is looking fantastic:Talk about a Mangrove Snapper to be proud of.Talk about being proud.
