FISH CLEANING, Vacuum Sealing, Freezing and Storage

Storage services for just $40

If you are staying in the area for an extended period of time and want to take your fish home, but do not have the storage space where you are staying, we offer a vacuum-sealing/freezing/storage service for up to 5 days with pickup at our location in Miami.  If you choose to take advantage of this add-on service, you will not need to stay around for your fish to be cleaned after your charter.  They will be cleaned offsite at our storage location and ready for you to pickup when you are ready.  Just let the captain know in advance if you plan on using this service.

ABOUT THE CAPTAIN

Capt. Donovan is a retired Army soldier after 20 years of faithful service to the military.

He grew up in a small town in Oklahoma before joining the Army and moving cross-country to various military installations and deploying to war twice.  He loves the outdoors and is an avid bowhunter and fisherman.   He spends his free time with family and volunteers with his Church serving the local community. He's been bowfishing for over a decade competing in bowfishing tournaments all across the country.  He's worked in an archery pro shop tuning bows.  He truly knows his equipment inside out and offers the best equipment for the experience.


As a sponsored Bass Pro Shops bowfishing pro-staff, you can find him at the Miami Bass Pro Shops conducting hunting and archery seminars as well as bowfishing seminars throughout the year. He loves taking people out on charters and sharing his passion for bowfishing.

Capt. Donovan and his wife, also an Army veteran, started this business in 2016 as a part-time operator. Now as a retired soldier, he is a full time charter captain.  They hope to share the joy of bowfishing and the quality time spent with friends and family it brings to as many visitors as possible.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Could not have had a better time with my grandson and nephew. Capt Donovan was a superb and patient instructor on how to bowfish. Boat and equipment are impeccable. He put us on some great fish all night long!  Would highly recommend this adventure to everyone!  We look forward to our next opportunity to fish with Capt Donovan!
