It's safe to say that a love for angling runs through Capt. Brad's veins. He's been working as a captain since he was 18, and has also commercial fished all his life! He started off running charter boats for other people, and loved it so much that he decided to turn this passion into a full-time business. As well as having plenty of experience under his belt, he also loves taking part in tournaments, and regularly fishes Mackerel tournaments in both South Carolina and North Carolina. He has some serious bragging rights to his name, too. He once hooked a 39 lb King Mackerel on a charter trip, and another time he reeled in a Wahoo weighing in at 89 lb on a commercial trip. As well as these impressive catches, his favorite part of the job is getting to see people enjoy the outdoors! He loves watching little kids head out for a day on the water, having a blast and catching their first fish. He loves providing people with a good day on water, and introducing them to this fantastic fishery.
