about the captain & his boat


captain matthew mayfield

I was born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I attended Mississippi State University and the Culinary Institute of American in Hyde Park, New York. My passion for the Gulf brought me back to the Coast to open Tay's BBQ. I acquired a 50 ton Masters captain license in 2014 for an excuse to spend more time doing what I love--- being on the water! Maybe, you can talk me into bringing along my famous smoked yellowfin tuna dip that is a favorite at Tay's BBQ.

Fish and explore aboard a truly sea worthy boat. It's perfect for sighting fish like Cobia, Triple Tail, and Redfish. The vessel is fully stocked with premium rods and reels with tackle.
