About Justin Leake
Born in Panama City, Justin was blessed to grow up in an area with such a rich fishing history and heritage. His family has lived, fished, and hunted in the Florida Panhandle since the 1800's! He has been married for 14 years to his wife, Angie and have two sons. As a fishing guide and TV show host, he has the unique opportunity to be able to reach millions of anglers across the country and also have face-to-face contact with them on the water.
He uses this time on the water to teach them new tactics and techniques as well as proper tackle and rigging. Although he spends most of his time in Panama City, he has fished in Belize, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Alaska, and the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Key West. He also enjoys duck hunting, dove hunting, deer hunting, and basically any shooting sports from archery to sporting clays. He is a U.S.C.G. licensed and insured charter captain. Between guiding, filming, tournament fishing and scouting, he spends around 300 days a year on the water. There is no shortage of salt in his blood, and he wouldn't have it any other way.
