About the Captain

Tobin Whiting
Sairee Beach, Thailand
Member since September 2014
Spent my entire life fishing since I was able to hold a rod. My passion for fishing grew as did my love for boats and the open ocean. Began fishing with friends aboard my first boat and the rest is history. Raced Thundercats and owned and operated a Marlin fishing boat out of Sydney Harbour, Australia for the past 20 years, raising Marlin almost 90% of the time. Seeing Marlin alongside is an experience no fisherman will ever forget, whether it's the first or the hundredth, it's always amazing.
