About the Captain

Carson Bashaw
Corpus Christi, Texas, United States
Member since June 2015
I have been a freshwater fisherman since I was a very young boy. I have always loved to saltwater fish and moved to Corpus Christi, Texas to attend Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2011. I couldn't stay away from the water, so I decided to go to a captains' school. Being a fishing guide was the life for me.
