Captain Bryan DiLeo
New Jersey, Somerspoint
BioCapt. Bryan DiLeo of the Iowa Fortune Guide Service brings to the boat 25 years fishing experience and 8 years as a full time professional guide from both the home waters of Southern New Jersey to the flats in the lower keys. Whether sight fishing for Striped Bass on the shallow water flats or probing deeper structure, a day on the water is far more than just a fishing trip. Both day and night trips are lessons in techniques, and strategies of nontraditional methods not often associated with Striped Bass fishing in Southern New Jersey. The service focuses on three specific techniques: back country, night fishing, and the much sought after sight fishing for Bass on the flats. Each one is unique in terms of setting and the techniques involved, and all present a new set of challenges for both fly fishermen and light tackle anglers alike.
Bryan guides the Southern New Jersey waters from Atlantic City to Cape May. Striped Bass season runs from April through November, but it does have its variations. During the winter Bryan continues guiding in the lower Florida Keys for tarpon, permit, and bonefish.
