About a Couple-A-Bucks
About Capt. Gargan
My name is John Gargan, Captain of Couple-A-Bucks Backcountry Charters. I grew up in Long Island, New York with my Dad, who was a Charter Captain in Mountauk. I moved to Islamorada, FL at 18 and have been here since. I’ve fished out of Whale Harbor Marina since ’68 doing both Offshore & Backcountry Fishing. I love to see “newbies” get excited about Fishing.
My wife, Jackie, was born and raised in Islamorada. We have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. Our son, Joe, also does Backcountry Fishing from Postcard Inn.
About My Boat
I fish aboard a beautiful custom 21′ Bay Boat powered by a 150hp Yamaha 4-stroke outboard. I am Coast Guard licensed and Insured. The boat is fully-equipped with all the necessary safety equipment and electronics.
My specialty is Family-type Fun Fishing trips with action as the main ingredient. Father and son, Father and Daughter or Mom and the Kids are the kind of fishing I enjoy the most. I love showing youngsters how to fish and enjoy fishing for the rest of their lives.
