At The Helm...

Capt. Charley Pereira
Capt. Charley Pereira - I grew up fishing in Coconut Grove, Florida, with occasional weekend and summer fishing trips in the Keys and Bahamas. My first trips from about age 4 involved cane poles from docks and sea walls with my brother Will. The water was very clear with not much pollution back then and we were stoked to catch beautiful reef fish via sight casting. Seeing the fish react to our presence and that of our line, tackle, and bait, and then seeing what happened when we tried to set the hook, taught us the basic instincts and techniques required to sucessfully catch fish.

By age 7, we expanded our experiences to anchoring, drifting, trolling, chumming, and spearfishing with friends, neighbors, and commercial fishermen who had boats. When not boat fishing, my brother and I would ride our bikes to a sea wall, canal, or lagoon and improve our skills, often bringing a mangrove snapper dinner home for Mom or to sell to the local fish markets to buy more bait and tackle. By age 13, I was hooked on offshore fishing for bigger saltwater fish and Will got hooked on fly fishing for trout in the Rocky Mountains.

After getting my Aeronautical Engineering degree in 1989, I took a job in DC investigating airplane accidents for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The work was good but the city life wasn't for me so on weekends I went to Hatteras, NC and Ocean City, MD, where I saw my first yellowfin and bluefin tuna hit the docks...I convinced some friends to book Hatteras charters with me and thus began the adult phase of my offshore addiction. I met Tom Zapf and Ken Antkowiak in 1993 and together we fished hundreds of days offshore on the various boats we each bought. We trolled, chunked, and live baited day and night. As we grew to know local Captains they began asking us to mate on their charter boats. Ken and I eventually got our Captain's Licenses and started running our own charters with my first big charter boat, the 50 ft Sushi coming in 2003. In 2005 I finally left the NTSB to run Sushi Sportfishing and pursue other business opportunities. In 2009 Lisa and I had our first baby, Savannah Caroline, and our second baby, Sophia Kaitlynn, was born in 2012. Our 3rd baby, Saylor Cay, was born in 2015! Our 3 girls are the joys of our life and have taught us what it means to be blessed and happy.

“9-year old Michelle learns to fish...”
I enjoy charter clients of all types - experienced or beginner. Whether your goal is to crush a limit of yellowfin and get back to the dock early, win a big-money marlin or tuna tournament, or stay out all day learning how to rig for and catch a variety of fish, I'll do my best to put you on the fish and help you have a good time on the water. I especially enjoy teaching youngsters how to fish and teaching all ages about the physics of fishing, which become increasingly important as fish size and strength increases. A 500 lb bluefin tuna or blue marlin is a lot easier to catch if you understand the physics involved in the tackle, angling technique, and boat maneuvering.
