2019 Top Charter Boat Captains

Here is your chance to give your favorite charter captain national recognition.

Sport Fishing again this year solicited nominations from the public for great captains and guides who fish salt waters and merit recognition. As of September 23, we reached our maximum of 60 unique captains and ended the nomination phase of the contest.


We are allowing 30 days for voting, starting October 1. The five captains with the greatest number of votes will be our 2019 Top Charter Captains of the Year. Each will receive a King Sailfish Mounts miniature replica mount with an engraved plaque, and in addition, each winner will be announced and spotlighted in a special gallery on sportfishingmag.com. 


Winners will be announced in mid-November.
