Capt. Jason Cartwright
Capt. Jason Cartwright was raised in southern Illinois with a passion for the outdoors. While working for the USDA, he met Ray through a mutual friend and agreed to take him on a hunting trip in exchange for a fishing trip in Miami. It wasn’t long after that Jason packed his bags in 2002 and moved to Miami to start a new career as a fisherman. With 15 years of experience running these boats with Ray, he is one of the most knowledgable captains in Miami, and yet he still has the same down to earth and friendly attitude that he arrived here with.
Capt. Ryan Peters
Capt. Ryan Peters is a Miami local who grew up fishing these waters both inshore for tarpon and trout, and offshore for all the pelagic favorites. He loves being on the water so much that he moved out of his parents home onto a motor yacht anchored in the bay, just so he could always have a line in the water! Ryan fishes hard at work, and just as hard on his days off. He’s soft spoken and friendly with everyone he meets, but to the fish… he’s not so nice! With so much local knowledge, he typically captains the Miss Cheyenne solo, allowing him to fish both inshore for snook/tarpon/trout, and offshore for sailfish/mahi/tuna/marlin. He’s also the go-to guy to ask where to go out on the town after your charter.
Capt. Brett Wilson
Capt. Brett Wilson has decades of fishing experience, but you’ll never see him boast or brag. When he’s not racking up sailfish releases in Miami, he’s running his own charter business, Hindsight Sportfishing in Cape Cod and catching 1,000 pound bluefin tuna as a commercial fisherman. Brett also fishes all of the sailfish tournaments here in Florida, and has won the prestigious Quest for the Crest tournament series. He’s no joke when it comes to fishing, he’ll have you reeling in fish until you’re begging for mercy!
1st Mate Steven Stallings may well be one of the most accomplished fisherman for his age in south Florida. He started coming to the dock at the age of 14, asking for fish carcasses to use for shark fishing; until he was asked to come fish on a charter as a “ride along”. His passion and love for the sport combined with his outstanding work ethic quickly led to a position as a full-time mate. We’re willing to bet he wants to catch fish even more than you, so try your best to keep up with him, especially if you find a big school of mahi!!!
Let's go fishing!
