Captain Thomas simply loves being on the water. He enjoys watching the sunrise and seeing wildlife in its natural surroundings. When the sun peeks over the horizon he'll usually stop to take a picture of the scene. He has studied fish behavior and he knows how it acts in various situations and how to catch it. Some of the factors which affect fish behavior are the depth, temperatures, water clarity, salinity levels, tidal ebb and flow, and other.
