About the Captain

ID & License verified

Response time 4 hours
Member since January 2021
Captain Brad has been serving as an active-duty Coast Guardsman for the past 5 years. While he loves his current role in the Coast Guard, he is ready to move onto the next chapter of life with his family. So, he decided to take a leap of faith and go into business with something he is deeply passionate about. Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, crabbing and chasing monster Striped Bass was a way of life. Over time he found his way to deep-sea fishing and was immediately hooked. Joining the coast guard not only allowed me to serve our amazing country but also grew my love and passion for the water. As his active-duty tour is coming to an end, he and his family are excited to plant some roots here in Charleston. And he can’t wait to share his passion for the water with you all!
