Les Achilles – Pelican Pro

Captain Les Achilles
Marine Life Pelican Pro

Captain Les Achilles has been a Captain since 1999 and is a 35 year veteran of the waters of Southwest Florida.   Being a charter boat Captain was a lifelong dream for Capt. Les and a skill he has spent most of his life perfecting. He uses techniques and styles of fishing seen by few people. Capt. Les brings this knowledge to the boat every day, along with his passion for fishing and teaching. Les is an extremely zealous fisherman and has competed and won multiple fishing tournaments over the years; from Key West to Charlotte Harbor. He gives 100% of himself every day, and shows his customers the best possible time on the water. Catching fish is not just what Capt. Les does, it’s who he is.

What is Sudden Impact Fishing?

Sudden Impact Fishing is a Professional Charter Service, serving all of south Florida, located in Cape Coral, FL. For the last 9 years, Captain Les Achilles, along with his brother, Captain Chris Achilles, owned and operated Venture Out Charters/Venture Outfitters, a bait and tackle store. As of July 2013, Capt. Les and Capt. Chris chose to focus solely on their respective charter careers and sold the bait and tackle store. Today you will find the brothers still representing Venture Out Charters with their newly named charter services. Capt. Les continues to provide the top notch service that his customers are used to. Back Bay Redfish trips, night time Snook trips, sightseeing lunch trips, riverbed shark teeth excursions, offshore trips for Grouper and Kingfish, Everglades airboat gator tours and Tarpon fishing are just some of what Capt. Les excels at. Sudden Impact Fishing can accommodate whatever type of trip the customers want.

How does Captain Les use Pelican products?

Every morning Capt. Les has a routine that he follows before he leaves the house: he grabs his coffee, keys, cell phone and his Pelican boxes. His large Pelican storage box houses all his tackle; this is, as some would say his bag of tricks. He uses the smaller Pelican storage boxes for his GPS, GoPro cameras and accessories – must haves for all professional fishermen. The Pelican boxes protect his most prized possessions from water, dust, sand, heat and impact; keeping them ultimately safe and in working order. As with all the Pelican cases, Capt. Les can change and configure the compartments to suit his needs. The cases are easy to use and hold up to a beating every day out on the water.
