"Have been a fisherman for my entire life. I fished commercially for years in Puerto Rico. Now I'm back in NC to pass on my passion of fishing." Captain Bradley Dray was born and raised in North Carolina, and has been around fishing his entire life. He moved to Puerto Rico and became involved in commercial fishing – he started his own fleet of boats, including 2 commercial Tuna fishing boats! His fleet was one of the top leaders when it came to reeling in lots of Tuna. He moved back to NC and decided to make the switch to chartering, as he wants to pass on his knowledge and skills.
