Captain Joshua Regans grew up fishing the Choctawhatchee Bay and opened up Reel Runners in 2015. Fishing has always been his passion and he knew he wanted to share that with others. Being out on the water every day and seeing the reactions on people's faces when they catch their first fish is what makes everything worthwhile.
