About Captain John Griffith…

Captain John grew up on the local waters he currently fishes – more specifically in Oldsmar, Florida where his backyard was Tampa Bay.  He has been a professional fishing guide for over 22 years and has fished from Sarasota Bay to New Port Richey for over 30 years.


He is recognized as one of Tampa Bay’s top back water and flats captains and is considered by many as the areas top snook guide.


Captain John has a long history of appearances on nationally and local televised TV shows and radio broadcasts.  He has been featured most recently on a 2015 episode of “Reel Animals” fishing show.  Other apperances date back to a 2001 TNN broadcast of “Offshore Angler” with fishing legend Stu Apt and even as far back as a 1997 TNN broadcast of “Southern Outdoor Magazine” which was the first ever nationally broadcasted snook episode to air in the bay area with a local guide.  John is also mentioned numerous times in Frank Sargeant’s “Masters of Snook” book
