Captain Phil Alves

Phil grew up in Miami, Florida and now lives in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He first started fishing around the age of 3, catching peacock bass with his Dad in the canal in their backyard. Fishing quickly became a favorite hobby for little Phil, and when he was around 7 years old, his Dad bought a boat for them to start fishing offshore for the large pelagic and reef fish that call Florida home. Phil’s first offshore fish was a grouper, and he was hooked since. Fishing became an obsession for Phil.
As Phil got older, his obsession became his career, and he became a mate on local drift boats. He worked his way from working the drift boats to working on sportfish boats. Now, Phil does it all.

Phil specializes in fishing for pelagic fish loves catching all fish, but his favorites to catch are ones that he has to hunt and chase for: wahoo and snook. These two fish are very hard to catch, and so much goes into enticing them to bite, from the moon, the tides, and the currents, but Phil always seems to excel at catching these fish. Phil says he doesn’t get excited for much, but he always gets excited when a snook or wahoo strikes his line.

That foundation of hard work and leadership skills led Stephen to joining the United States Marine Corps in 2008. Over the last 12 years, Stephen has faithfully served his country on multiple deployments too numerous locations.

While serving as US Marine he also managed being a father to three girls, a husband to a wonderful wife, and attending American Military University as full time student.
