Since becoming a captain in 2003, Captain Scott Borne has racked up the wins on the tournament circuit. With over 50 top three finishes (as Captain) and another 20 some as mate, fishing with Capt. Scott gives you and your guests the best chance at that fishing trip of a lifetime!

Hi, my name is Captain Scott Borne. I’m a full time saltwater fishing guide in Jensen Beach, Florida. For the last 30 years I have lived in Martin County fishing the local waters, as well as throughout the Bahamas, the Keys and the Yucatan (Isla Mujeres Mexico). I have been a professional fisherman for the last 20 years, with the last nine spent as Captain of the Stuart based fishing charter boat Boneshaker. My experience with charter, private, tournament, and demo boats, along with hosting seminars, radio and television shows has helped me develop a well-rounded approach to ensuring that you have the most enjoyable day on the water along with the best opportunity to land your dream fish.

Even before I can remember, (they say) I enjoyed catching anything that would eat my bait. At 2 ½ my first off-shore game fish was about a ten pound Barracuda (I’ve seen the pictures) the same day I saw a sailfish caught and I got seasick and sunburned. I was hooked for life.

I feel extremely fortunate to have been exposed to such a fulfilling lifestyle through the boating community. Some of my fondest memories are of family fishing trips, vacations fishing and diving in the Bahamas, and little one day fishing tournaments out of Stuart. Now, with “OFF the CHAIN” I’m looking forward to providing both my family and yours with those same great times. One of the best parts about this job other than “the Bite” is watching people experience what will become their most cherished memories. Whether it’s catching the fish of a lifetime, watching the satisfaction a dad gets as he helps his child reel in their first fish, or celebrating a memorable occasion, I understand this day is special to you and your guests. My goal is to make your trip the most enjoyable and memorable it can be and I always give 110% to make sure your Fl. fishing charter is OFF THE CHAIN!
