Captain Zach Armistead is a St. George Island and Apalachicola native. He started fishing at the age of 3 years old with his father, Chris Robinson of Robinson Brothers Guide Service, who raised him up to be a St. George Island and Apalachicola fishing guide.

In 1959, the Armistead family built the 7th house on St. George Island, before the first bridge to St. George Island was built. They helped in the beginning of the development of St. George Island and built many of the businesses there.

Zach's family has fished the Apalachicola Bay and St. George Island flats for over 60 years. They have passed the tradition of St. George Island and Apalachicola fishing on to their children and grandchildren, one of which is Captain Zach. This passed down tradition of fishing the Apalachicola Bay and St. George Island flats has given him a lifetime of experience and fishing expertise.

As a second-generation Apalachicola and St. George Island charter guide fisherman, Captain Zach can answer all of your questions about the Apalachicola and St. George Island areas. He will make sure that your guided Apalachicola fishing trip is one that you will remember for a lifetime! His goal and hope is to help you start a fishing tradition while visiting Florida’s Forgotten Coast, that will carry on for generations to come.

Come aboard Captain Zach’s 23ft C-Hawk with spotting tower for the ultimate St. George Island and Apalachicola fishing charter experience and see for yourself how fun and exciting an Apalachicola fishing trip can be with the right fishing guide!

If you aren’t interested in fishing but would love to spend some time sight-seeing and relaxing, an Apalachicola River tour or sunset cruise with Captain Zach as your knowledgeable guide will be an experience to remember.
