2015 Charter Captains of the Year

Chosen by the fans of Sport Fishing magazine

In August, we asked Sport Fishing fans who knew a great charter captain to tell us. They did! Once we'd acquired 60 names, we posted them and asked for fans to vote for their favorite. They did that, too, and after two weeks and thousands of votes, we can now list the top five as your Charter Captains of the Year. We present those five outstanding skippers here. Each will receive a great miniature replica mount with engraved plaque from King Sailfish Mounts — and, best of all, recognition for being outstanding captains. (If "your" skipper didn't make it, take heart — and be ready to name him/her when we call for nominations next summer!) — SF Editors
