PBOA welcomes Tony Digiulian as our January 21st club speaker to get the sailfish season into full gear.

Anthony “Tony” DiGiulian is the owner and president of Saltwater Professional Consulting. He has spent over twenty five years in the sport fishing industry. Tony started his career in 1979, on his aunt and uncle's charter boat, out of Shinnecock Inlet, Long Island N.Y. As a professional captain and first mate, he has led anglers to over 5000 billfish captures world wide, including several ultra light world records and tournament victories.

A published writer on various subjects, Tony is a recognized expert on all types of saltwater fishing. He has worked for most of the top sport fishing operations in the world and has learned his craft from some of the most famous captains of our generation. This list includes legendary Captains Skip Smith, Eddie Herbert, Rick Defeo, Dan Timmons and Australian Laurie Wright.

Most recently, Tony and Saltwater Professional Consulting have co-founded with the International Game Fish Association, the I.G.F.A. School of Sport Fishing. Mr. DiGiulian has always been deeply committed to the sport fishing industry and above all, has a deep desire to help preserve our marine environment. He is an original member of the South East Swordfish Club, committee member of the Big Game Room at the Miami International Boat Show, committee member of the Jeb Bush Classic, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Sailfish Tournament and an active member of the Billfish Foundation, recently named to their captain's advisory board. He is a repeat speaker at Lady's Let's Go Fishing seminars and has been interviewed for countless articles on fishing related subjects by all the major fishing magazines.
