Captain Gray Long

My love and passion for offshore fishing began at the early age of 10 when my father would check me out of school early to go along with him on fishing trips with his clients. I can remember being so excited to have the opportunity to go. I loved everything about it. The long drive down from Alexandria, the lack of sleep, and the ride out to the fishing grounds that seemed to take days. It was all so very exciting and interesting.

I realize now that I drove the captain and deckhands crazy with all the questions but I wanted to learn everything about it. Back then, with the liberal limits we would fill the huge fish boxes with all types of Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack and Cobia as well as other cool looking fish. I can remember not even wanting to take a break to eat or drink , I didn’t want to miss a minute of fishing time. And I always feared hearing those words from the captain saying it was time to head in. From those days on I was driven to get my own boat and fish out there as often as I could and stay for as long as I wanted.

After all those years have passed, I still have that same passion and love for offshore fishing and I thoroughly enjoy sharing it with my customers. The old saying that goes, “find something you like to do and you will never work a day in your life” certainly applies to being an offshore fishing captain. Though the days are long and the nights are short, fishing out in the Gulf of Mexico is truly a labor of love for me.

First Mate Stephen Giacobbe

I have been a first mate aboard the Triple Threat for two years. I have a true passion for the sport and have been fishing for as long as I can remember.

Much like Gray, I remember being very excited to go on fishing trips with my dad as a young kid. My dad showed me the ropes, and I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today with out him.

Working with Gray has been awesome! He has taught me more than I thought was imaginable. I really enjoy taking time with the customers, teaching and educating them about our fishery.

I handle a good bit of the social media for Go Long Charters.  It’s one of my favorite parts of the job, being able to capture moments of a lifetime for our clients.

My most memorable part of working for Go Long Charter’s has to be the first three days that I had worked with Gray. We caught 13 yellowfin over 100lbs and countless big blackfin.

I look forward to spending many more days on the water learning and fishing with Gray.
