About Me

South Florida Freshwater Charter Captain 


S

My name is Scott Rose and I am a 23 year old graduate from the University of Miami. I grew up in New York fly fishing for brown trout, but my travels to Florida have forced me to change my way. I now guide in Miami for peacock bass, largemouth bass in the Everglades, and even a little bit for Clown Knifefish and Bullseye Snakehead.  I am the current IGFA All-Tackle World Record holder for the Popoca Peacock bass. My passion is being outside and teaching people about the sport that I love so much. I run a 18' bass tracker which is perfectly suited for the fisheries I target.  I am fortunate to fish almost every day year round!
