About Captain Tony Zain

Captain Tony was born and raised in Michigan and has been a licensed captain since the age of 18.  At the age of 18 Tony began his first business guiding on the waters of Lake St. Clair for smallmouth bass. He has been featured in the Detroit Free Press, ESPN The Magazine, and numerous fishing publications over the years. As an apprentice to some of the best fly fishing captains in the country, Tony spent the majority of his early years fishing in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and New Mexico. At the age of 17, Tony’s mentor and friend took him under his wing and gave him a job as a grunt in the tundra of Southern Alaska where Tony became a professional guide. In 2006, Tony moved to San Diego and launched San Diego Pacific Adventures. He fished the Pacific Ocean for Bluefin, Yellowfin, and Albacore along the Baja Peninsula. In 2013, Tony moved to Miami and launched Miami Light Tackle Adventures. He fished offshore for mahi mahi, tuna, kingfish, sailfish, and other various pelagic fish until moving to Anna Maria Island in 2016.

In 2016, Tony launched Skyway Sportfishing to fulfill his lifelong dream of living on the gulf coast of Florida where he feels the fishing is most active. He loves meeting new people, delivering the best in customer service, and sharing his worldwide knowledge of fishing. If you’d like to have an experience of a lifetime, give us a call.
