CAPTAINS LOG

Live. Love. Fish. 

Capt Lacey was a female fishing guide in Southwest Florida over 5 years before making the move to Belize to flyfish for permit, bonefish, tarpon, and more. 

Throwin' it back to the good 'ol days...

One of my favorite things about social media lately is the throwback thursday trend. Especially for those that I follow in the fishing and hunting industries. I think it's really neat to see where folks come from and how their passion for the outdoors has blossomed over the years. 

So with that being said thanks to my parents you can check out a few oldies but goodies that created the monster I am today. 

Jump in,

Capt Lacey

I was used as shark & barracuda bait quite a bit while my parents were busy lobstering in the southern Florida Keys.

First fish I speared! It may have been the smallest mangrove snapper I've ever got but it sure as heck was mine :)

Don't mess with me, I'm 11 here and serious about deer hunting.

I learned from a young age that if you killed it you cleaned it.

My first boat was a classic old aquasport named "Due South". I remember putting in at the boat ramp getting some pretty confusing looking stares when I used to take it out.

The rest is history… Will prob recap and throwback some of my days guiding in Florida soon. Thanks to my parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles for all giving me my roots & my wings.
