Captain Matthew McCarthy, originally from Western Massachusetts, started his Florida fishing journey shortly after graduating from Lasell College in Newton, MA. Matthew spent most of his adolescent years enjoying life on the salt water. His fondest memories take place on the New England coast of the Atlantic, including the Block Island Sound & Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island and Cape Cod Bay & Buzzards Bay in Massachusetts. Matt started operating boats at the young age of 12, he would often take family and friends deep sea fishing for bluefish and bass. Matthew pursued his “official” captain’s license once moving down to beautiful Jupiter, Florida, where he now charters for Reel Candy Sportfishing. Nothing makes Capt. Matt happier than putting big fish on the end of a reel!
