Captain
Roger Mathis

 

Captain Roger Mathis  was born and raised from the salt of Apalachicola shoreline. He learned to navigate the bay from an early age by oystering with his father who owns a local fish house. Capt. Roger is a master of the cast net and just as skilled with a rod and reel.  Every native on the bay knows Capt. Roger by name. He claims a vendetta on the flats fish but works with equal ease catching the monsters of the deep reefs.
