In the Florida Keys, Captain Brian Cone is a legend when it comes to hunting dolphin, tuna, snapper and many other offshore species. When you fish on the Contagious you not only catch fish, but you learn so much about Cone’s fishing techniques.  Captain Cone was raised in the Keys exploring the ocean since he was just a little tyke. His vast knowledge of the ocean and its marine life will keep you fascinated and wanting more. His passion and intensity for fishing and his easy way will surely make your day on the water a memory you will never forget.  Clearwater Adventures is fortunate beyond measure to have Captain Brian Cone on its team.

Brian McCadie has been fishing the Florida Keys for 17 years.  If he’s not running a charter he’s taking his kids fishing, snorkeling or lobstering.  His main expertise is fishing offshore, reefs, wrecks, tarpon, spear fishing and lobstering. His boat, “The Satistfaction”, is a very comfortable 25' Parker with a fully enclosed pilot house, toilet, and plenty of room for up to 6 people to all fish at the same time. Captain McCadie will be in charge of the free diving and spear fishing for Clearwater Adventures. We look forward to Captain McCadie’s skills and leadership

Captain TJ was born in south Florida and grew up fishing all of the surrounding waters. He spent most of his days fishing with his Grandfather and Dad learning the skills to catch redfish, snook, and tarpon. With Capt. TJ's love for fishing he also learned the art of fishing offshore for sailfish and dolphin. Even though Capt. TJ is a younger captain, his experience of fishing and navigating the waters in Islamorada, The Florida Bay, and Miami is tremendous. A Day on the water with Capt. TJ will be exciting, adventurous and will give you the opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime.
