Captain Fernando has been fishing since he was a kid and he never stopped. Being the son of a fisherman, it felt natural to continue with the family tradition. It didn't take long till his passion became a profession. This style of living lets him meet new people all the time and it's a great "excuse" to do what he loves the most - catch big game fish!
