About the Captain

James Rice
Marbury, Maryland, United States
Capt. James Rice – better known as "Captain Jim" – has been on the water since he was 9 years old. His brother went into commercial fishing, so you could say that fishing runs in the family. They were both born and raised on the Potomac and Capt. Jim claims to know these waters like the back of his hand. He's comfortable reeling in scores of huge fish and teaching the next generation how to fish, and hopes to put a smile on your face as you fill the boat with him.
