About the Captain

Hunter Barrett
Long Beach, California, United States
ID & License verified

Response time 4 hours
Member since May 2021
Captain Hunter Barrett grew up in Huntington Beach and has always been around and loved the ocean. He started surfing when he was 6 years old and found his passion for fishing at 8 when he caught his first Mackerel. After that, his dad would take him out all the time, burning out with how often his son wanted to go fishing. When the captain was 18, he started to work on a 6-pack charter boat called “Options.” He worked as the second captain for 4 years and learned from one of the best White Seabass fishermen on the coast. Enjoy your trip to Long Beach by stepping out with a true professional aboard HB Sportfishing!
