Capt. Jesse Zuban, Jr. is a third generation fisherman and Florida native. He has been on the water since 1995 when his father opened Miss Virginia Deep Sea Fishing. Jesse became a professional Captain in 2012 in command of the 85 foot Two Georges docked in Tarpon Springs, Florida and decided to branch off into his own charter operation, Paladin Fishing Charters. He has spent thousands of hours plotting the Gulf of Mexico for the best locations to put his customers "on top of the fish." In his spare time Jesse continues to run the Two Georges or goes out fishing on his own. Although young, saltwater runs through his veins; He is considered one of the most experienced Captains on the west coast of Florida.


Our Crew has a combined 50 years experience in offshore fishing and can help you catch virtually any type of fish the Gulf of Mexico has to offer including Grouper, Kingfish, Amberjack, Snapper, Shark, Cobia, Tarpon, Tuna, Wahoo, and Dolphin. We are experienced in many different angling techniques including trolling, and bottom fishing. We use both live and artificial baits as required. Our ultimate goal is to do our very best to assure our customers catch the maximum number of fish, allowed by law, during their charter with us.
