Join Capt. Judd A. Wise every Tuesday Night at 6 pm for all the latest news and notes from the Key West fishing world. Each week Judd talks with the top Charter Boat Captain’s from the Lower Keys, gives you the latest news and regulation notes along with upcoming Tournaments, and of course, he will let you know what fish are biting. It’s The Zone Fishing Show every Tuesday Night at 6 pm on The Zone 97.7.


Coach/Captain Judd A. Wise, known as the SHIRTLESS CAPTAIN, was born in Akron, Ohio, and raised on the west coast of Florida in Fort Myers. A graduate of Fort Myers High and Jacksonville University. He learned to fish at an early age. My dad would take me fishing and I developed a passion for it. Coming to the Keys to lobster, and fish in the summertime sold me on Key West. My wife Penni and I moved here July 15, 1983, and I began my career as a teacher, she as a nurse. Our first boat was a Hewes, and as I learned about the waters of the Keys, the more I fell in love with our Island. We have raised two children here (Katie, and Trish). They love the Island life as much as we do. Trish was a world record holder for the heaviest Barracuda in the Pee Wee division of the IGFA. Fishing is a family passion. Not a charter captain, but a weekend warrior, I have always been fascinated by the different species of fish you can catch in and around our waters.

April of 2015 General Manager Rick Lopez asked me to Co-Host a new show called the VFW Fishing show with Captain Pete Thomas on WKWF 1600 AM. Capt. Pete moved shortly, and Rick asked me to continue the show. We discuss rules and regulations and different captains are on to talk about what is biting and how to catch em up. WKWF 1600 AM shutdown. Florida Keys Media made the change to the new sports station WAVK 97.7 FM, 100,000 watts of power. THANKS TO ALL MY LISTENERS AROUND THE GLOBE EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT AT 6 pm!
