Meet Captain Stephen Crews and Black Flag Company

Get ready to hoist the black flag and join Captain Stephen Crews on his maritime adventures! Captain Stephen is the owner and operator of the fishing charter company Black Flag Company.

From the Captain:

Raised in a family deeply rooted in fishing, my father's journey from being a guide to becoming a game warden during my childhood inspired my own passion for the sport. Growing up, I spent countless days immersed in fishing and hunting pursuits. As an adult, that lifelong enthusiasm remains undiminished. Prior to becoming a captain, I pursued a livelihood as a commercial shark fisherman, which allowed me to fully embrace my love for the water while providing others with the same incredible experiences I cherished as a child. Since transitioning into a captaincy role, I have had the privilege of guiding both inshore and offshore excursions, witnessing firsthand the joy on individuals' faces as they reel in the biggest fish of their lives. I eagerly anticipate many more of these unforgettable moments to come.

At Black Flag Company, we excel in a wide range of fishing styles and techniques. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to fishing, and that's why we adapt our methods to maximize your success on the water. Whether it involves utilizing different trolling gear for landing impressive Wahoo or King Mackerel, employing lightweight spinning reels to fill your cooler with Mahi Mahi, or employing various bottom fishing strategies like chicken rigs, sow rigs, or free-lining live bait, we are dedicated to putting you in the best position for an action-packed fishing experience with bent rods and tight lines.

Boat details:

The 36' Hatteras (Flybridge) is a powerful fishing boat equipped with twin 435HP Caterpillar 3208 Diesel engines, enabling a maximum speed of 30 knots. Originally built in 1975, this vessel combines durability and performance. With a capacity to accommodate up to 6 guests, it offers a comfortable and thrilling fishing experience on the water.

At Black Flag Company, we ensure an exceptional day on the water that will leave you longing for more or never wanting to leave! We guarantee a memorable experience that will create a lasting desire to return for future adventures.
