Captain Brian Magaline is a San Francisco Bay Area native, born and raised in Marin County. He’s been fishing these waters since he was 10 years old, accumulating a breadth of knowledge about local fisheries and species. He’s tried many different jobs throughout his life but he just couldn’t escape the grip of sportfishing, as if being reeled in by the inescapable allure of the San Francisco Bay. He worked on charters for 16 years until deciding to start his own business. He’s been a licensed captain since 2012 and hasn’t looked back since. His favorite part of the job is “seeing someone catch a fish for the first time.” Capt. Brian invites you to join Lucky Six Sportfishing on an unforgettable journey through the San Francisco Bay and get ready to have the time of your life!
