Capt. Tommy Locke started guiding in the early 80’s for world-record tarpon on fly.  He still specializes as a teaching guide in the ultimate challenge of taking giant tarpon on fly, but he also fishes year round for the many game fish off the island of Boca Grande.  Tommy has fished throughout the Keys and across the state of Florida. He has been guiding in the Gold Cup Tarpon Tournament in Islamorada for 6 years, appeared in several fishing shows, conducted seminars, and served as a product advisor.  Tommy is a spokesperson for the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and other local organizations, working with marine biologists to preserve the fishery and ensure the health of our habitat.

Seasonally, Tommy has started guiding duck/teal/snipe trips and gator hunts on Lake Okeechobee.  He is also able to utilize his airboat for extreme shallow-water fishing in the winter months around Boca Grande.  Visitors to the island can charter airboat excursions with Tommy to learn and experience the beauty of Charlotte Harbor’s back country.
