Guiding smiles in SWFL...

Whether you are new to saltwater fishing or been doing it for years, V1 Charters can't guarantee you will catch your biggest fish, but we can promise you a good time. 

We offer a number of dates throughout the year for Vets and Active Duty Military. If we are not available there are a number of affiliate guides who also provide discounts and we are happy to refer you. 

Please reach out to us and tell us a little about your group and your story. 

We would be honored.

Captain Brian Strojny


The Boat

The V1 vessel is a 2020 NauticStar center console. It is designed to fish in water as skinny as 1 foot but can also navigate the gulf on calmer days. 

Our boat can accommodate 3 anglers comfortably and typically stays in Estero Bay with occasional trips up Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel.


About the Captain

My dad served in the Air Force and my Stepfather in the Army. One Grandfather was a Marine and moved to Florida when I was very young. The other was an Army vet I fished with in MN too many times to count. The biggest smiles I have ever seen were trips out on the water with each of them. V1Fishing was started to bring that same joy to other veterans and their families.

Originally from MN, I grew up walleye fishing in the rivers and lakes of the midwest. After fishing in Florida I was hooked. Today I am a USCG-Certified Captain and a member of the USCG Auxiliary-Flotilla 96 Wiggins Pass.

When I'm not on the water I'm spending time with my family & friends or running the dogs out in the fields of South Dakota.
