Meet Capt. Allen Mills

Capt. Allen has been fishing for over 38 years from Fernandina Beach, FL. down to Mexico and the Bahamas. For the last 30 years he has been guiding at home (Amelia Island, Florida) from back country to blue water.

Capt. Allen loves sight cast fishing (whether it’s for Redfish in the Backwater, or Cobia offshore). With a fly rod or light tackle, the thrill of seeing the fish before you catch it is one of the best highs in life. Capt. Allen also holds a current World Record for Bonnethead Shark (check out our Shark fishing tours)
