Skins and Fins Fishing Charters ~ Father and Son Fishing Team!

Captain Donnie is a second-generation captain and Florida Keys native. Early life at the age of three, Captain Donnie got hooked on his first fish and in turn a life passion. After years of learning from his father and other captains throughout the waters of the Florida Keys and Everglades, Donnie got his first boat at the age of 15. Since then he has been at the helm and on the pole of his very own skiff every year since.

Donnie has put in countless hours on the water fine tuning his craft and chasing fish all around the Florida bay. He has now been a licensed Captain of his own vessel for over ten years. With those ten years his knowledge of the water has grown even greater. While on a charter with Capt. Donnie, not only will you experience a beautiful environment but you’ll learn the proper way to preserve it for future generations.

Whether you are a youngin looking for your first catch or someone looking for that dream fishing experience Capt. Donnie will do his very best day in and day out to get it done! “I live for the joy and excitement I see in my clients faces when they catch that one fish they will remember for a lifetime!”
