Captain
Camille Mellot

Member since November 2014 Venice, United States
Background
Growing up on a large dairy farm in western Massachusetts, there wasn’t much for my brother and I to do once our chores were done, so we spent the majority of our free time stalking Trout through the mountain streams that flowed across our family’s property. When I moved to Florida, I fell in love with the amazing fishery that is found in Sarasota and the surrounding areas including Tampa Bay, Venice, and Charlotte Harbor. I was very fortunate in that one of the first people I met when I moved here was one of the best guides in the area and over time he taught me the intricacies and tactics for successfully fishing both the inshore and offshore waters of the greater Sarasota area. Now, many years later the area waterways feel more like home to me than any other place on Earth.
Techniques
I am a light Tackle and sight fishing enthusiast, especially when the conditions are right on the flats or in the backcountry. Light Tackle allows clients an opportunity to really go toe to toe with our area game fish in a much more fun and exciting way than with much heavier tackle.
