Leiza Fitzgerald


Captain Leiza grew up in Key West and in the woods of Moss Bluff, Florida. Her passion for fishing, hunting and conservation was learned from her father. A degree in Marketing has allowed Leiza to combine her passions with work for over 25 years in the outdoor industry before joining Coastal Conservation Association in 2014 as the Director of STAR, CCA’s highest profile event and Florida’s largest fishing competition. Her career with CCA allows Leiza to promote the conservation of our marine resources and being good stewards of those resources while still giving her a little time to combine her skills of hunting with fishing so that she may stalk the flats, oyster bars or any body of saltwater to sight cast whatever species of fish is biting and still call it work.
