The Captain (US Coast Guard Certified)
Captain John grew up fishing and has mastered many aspects of fishing from fly fishing for wild trout in mountain streams to trolling for Giant Bluefin Tuna and Billfish offshore. From a very young age his love of fishing helped him gain a solid grasp on the art of catching fish. The natural progression of a skilled fisherman takes years and Captain John's fascination with the art of catching fish led him to many trophies in both fresh and saltwater. From a young age Captain John seemed to have a knack for catching fish. Attention to detail and patterns while on the water has allowed him to understand fish behavior and most importantly how their behavior can be used to an anglers advantage. Captain John will work hard to share his knowledge with his guests and enjoys watching others share the love that he has for fishing.
