C2 Inshore’s founder, Captain Lamar Cronon, was born and raised in the mountains of North Georgia. Whether he was chasing trout in the abundant winding streams or searching for bass in the depths of the highland lakes, fishing has always been an important part of his life. When Capt. Lamar began salt water fly fishing, he discovered a whole new level of fishing that he immediately fell in love with. Having started several small, successful businesses throughout his life, which ranged from deck building to pet care, he decided to change his career path to his true calling.
Capt. Lamar has fulfilled his dream of becoming a salt water fly fishing charter captain by obtaining his captain license through the United States Coast Guard. He has also taken courses in teaching fly fishing, so even the unexperienced can have an expert to show them how to properly cast and land a fish. Since fly fishing can be exceptionally challenging, he also specializes in light tackle.
C2 Inshore Charters has joined up with the Florida Guide Association and Captains for Clean Water. This group is dedicated to keeping Florida’s water clean to not only provide a healthy setting for wildlife, but to also ensure Floridians and tourists have a safe environment to enjoy.
Capt. Lamar also offers services to Operation Injured Soldiers, an organization that offers opportunities for injured veterans and/or combat veterans. He provides fishing trips to those veterans that qualify through the organization.
Captain Lamar’s love of the ocean and fishing is an inspiration to all that meet him. He will do everything in his power to ensure that every customer is satisfied with their C2 Inshore’s fishing experience.
