About Us

A lifetime of boating, fishing and cooking!

Capt. Gene got his start at the age of 12 in his father’s New York fish store!

Check out these photos!

It all started in the 1940s with Capt. Rocky Becker offering a fishing charter aboard Tampa, his fast diesel boat operating out of Sheepshead Bay in New York, followed by Capt. Victor Becker, and then Capt. Gene Becker offering charters in New York and New Jersey aboard a succession of Tampa fishing vessels.

Capt. Gene started working in his father’s New York fish store, cleaning the catch of the day, at the age of 12 – and the rest is history! 

Each week, Capt. Gene offers the area’s freshest, fast-frozen seafood at Southwest Florida’s best farmer’s markets. Click here for locations and schedule.
