From hunting swordfish with his father to raising his own daughter on the water, Captain Stanczyk has always lived his life in sync with the sea. It’s a Stanczyk way of being that’s been passed on from generation to generation. Head south to the sportfishing paradise of Islamorada and take a dive into the Stanczyk fishing legacy.
