Our Crew

Carole Ann II is one of thelargest charter boats on Marco Island she is also one of the few boats that runs with a Captain and an expert 1st mate to help during your trip.

Captain Scott Ray was born in Boston Mass. His father worked for Evinrude and Johnson outboards making it possible for the family to be outfitted with the newest fishing boats and equipment. They spent their time on the beautiful New England waters where Scott learned fishing skills from his father. 

The Ray family decided to move toMarco Island in 1980. With his time boating up North, Scott was able to land a job at the beach being a lifeguard and teaching sailing. Needing more adventure and time on the sea he sailed to St Croix USVI where he learned more about deep sea fishing and numerous other vessels.

With his expanded experience and knowledge he acquired his first 50 ton Captains license. After years in the Caribbean he began working as Captain aboard off shore tugboats throughout the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico where he earned his Merchant Marine License 1600 ton upon all oceans.

Our 1st mate Steve Schmidt hails from Marietta Georgia, he worked as a corporate executive around the country for many years. Steve decided the suit and tie thing was not for him and moved to Goodland, Florida. Steve has raced sailboats, worked as mate on fishing charter boats for the last 10 years and recently acquired his 6 passenger captains license. Steve’s sense of humor and fishing expertise is an excellent asset to your great day of fun and excitement.
