About the Captain

Bryan Hopkins
Pensacola Beach, Florida, United States
5 Fishing Reports

Response time 5 hours
Member since May 2019
Captain Bryan began fishing somewhere around the age of 7. He would strap his rod and tackle box to his bicycle and set off in search of a nearby pond or creek. There he would wade in the cool streaming black waters with a stringer of bream on his belt loop, casting small baits into the shadows of overhanging bushes against the banks. He eventually had the opportunity as a young teenager to begin fishing offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and has been passionate about the sport ever since. He feels he's been blessed with the opportunity to experience saltwater fishing in places like the Northern Gulf, Florida Keys, as well as the Atlantic Gulf stream, off the Carolina coast. He absolutely enjoys sharing his passion with others, particularly someone who has never had the opportunity to reel in a big fish. It brings him joy to help someone create that lasting memory.
