About Capt Peterson's
More than just fishing. 15 years of service in the global war on terror. We believe in challenging the status quo by doing things differently. That is why we lived on Dog Island, FL (Boat access only) with our 5 kids for over a year. We inspire continuous improvement through camaraderie while living a waterfull life. Capt. SGT Peterson's proven process for fishing has been applied both locally and internationally for 19+ years to catch the most, and the biggest fish. These techniques have been honed since 1990, whence he began guiding family and friends at the age of 10 on his 14ft Lund aluminum fishing boat that was passed down to him by his grandfather. Just like his grandfather Capt. SGT Peterson guarantees you will catch fish. We book up over a year in advance so call now to save your date! Capt.

Going fishing with Capt Peterson was a great experience. The weather was against us but we prevailed and myself and boyfriend caught some fish anyway. Capt Tim and Troy were just the best.

I recently attended a trip with Hometown Hero Outdoors and thanks to Capt Tim Peterson, this is a trip I will never forget. First time off shore fishing so didn’t didn’t know what to expect but this was amazing. Capt Tim put us on fish immediately and it never stopped. I can’t wait to return!

Here's the deal people, I have traveled all over the world and reviewed many places. This experience with Cpt Peterson was nothing like I have ever experienced. Not only is he dedicated to helping veterans, Cpt P does not mess around when getting us on fish. Many of us fulfilled items on our bucket list. You want red snapper? He's got you. You want to attempt to pull up a goliath grouper? He's on it. Frankly there is no other guide that will give you the full treatment like he will. He knows where the fish are. Just look at our pics, pick up the phone, and book your trip.

I began coordinating our family fishing outing months in advance since folks were coming in from across the country. Capt Tim demonstrated his kind, outstanding service and passion for what he does immediatly and throughout our charter. Every aspect of planning and logistical execution was seemless. Many communications were initiated by Capt Tim to ensure maximum enjoyment for all hands. We limited on red snapper including a few caught by our 80 year old matriarch early in the voyage. Most of us were first timers and were guided by Capt and First Mate to a point where we felt like old salts by the end of the day. The variety of catches, sightings, near misses and huge unsighted beasts that taunted us defies my vocabulary. I highly encourage newbies and experienced anglers alike to charter with Capt Tim. We will be back so you'll have to schedule around us.

Had a great time on the gulf with Capt. Peterson. It was my first time on the gulf for me and the first deep sea trip for my son. Originally scheduled for 2pm, the trip was moved to 10am. Capt. Peterson contacted the day before to suggest an earlier time b/c the 2pm forecast was for rough seas - definitely not ideal conditions for a kid new to the ocean. The reschedule put us out there in perfect weather. It was a little rough going out, but calm for miles when we hit the fishing ground and smooth on the way back. Oh, and that boat can fly when he opens her up. Once we got lines in the water, current was killing us when simply bottom fishing, so the captain explained to me to how to flat line, and we started pulling them in, left and right. The switch to lighter tackle and letting the lines float out slowly made it feel like real fishing. Rather than just pulling and reeling straight up from the bottom, Capt. Peterson showed me how to work the line with some finesse while flatlining, and we started hauling in big reds. My kid kept bottom fishing, and once he got the hang of it, he started pulling them into the boat until he tired out. Had me beat by 3-4 fish for a while until I got the hang of the flatline. In the end, we caught a mess of snapper and kept our limits. Had some big fish on lines running out, and while we fought them well, we lost them to the sea. On one runner that pulled about 300 yards out, the captain asked if I wanted to pull up and chase her with the boat. Pretty cool that he’d be willing to run around and pull up stakes just to give us a wild experience. Sadly, whatever it was running line like crazy, it broke free before we could get up and give chase. Capt. Pete would have let us run all day chasing it. He’s the type of captain who let you spend your day as you want and try to get you an experience you’ve never before had. It was a quick run in and he had his fishmonger on the dock waiting for us. We were cut and cleaned in minutes. Overall, great experience. One more important note, we had boats all around us when we started, but no one was catching anything. Eventually, we were the last boat out b/c we were the only one reeling in fish. That’s a testament to Capt. Peterson’s know-how and patience.
