These Captains represent some of the Best in the area which is curated by our team.

Captain Jarrod Wallach

Captain Jarrod Wallach is a second generation captain. Born in New York and transplanted to Florida in 2014. Owner of iR Marketing and Aquatic Escapes, Fishing Charters and Tours.
From as early as I can remember, my dad had me on a boat with a fishing rod in my hands. At first, I was simply excited to have bait on my hook and hang with my dad. As I grew up the fish got bigger and bigger… and I was hooked!
Growing up in New York, we would fish for Fluke, Flounder, Strippers & Cod in the winter. We would also enter the occasional shark fishing tournament. Fishing was, and still remains, a huge part of my life and it gave my father and I the time we needed to bond, before he unexpectedly left us in 2006.
