Capt. Sandy Melvin has been a full time professional fisherman in the waters surrounding Boca Grande since 1987. In 1993, he founded Boca Grande’s original fly shop, Gasparilla Outfitters, along with his wife Robin and partner Judy Davis as a companion shop with Special Effects.
He specializes in night Tarpon fishing in the Pass during season from his 24′ custom Morgan, “Boca Blue” and is a multiple time tarpon tournament winner. He also guides in the backcountry with live bait, artificials and flies for Snook, Redfish, and Speckled Trout from his 17′ Maverick Mirage skiff for the skinny water.
