Captain Trent grew up on the Chesapeake Bay and has an extreme love for the water. Prior to getting his USCG 50-ton master's license, he was a contractor for the Navy doing heavy marine construction throughout the US and the world. He also did marine construction throughout the Chesapeake Bay. About 5 years ago, Captain Trent left the corporate world as a Project Manager to become a mate on a fishing charter and never looked back. He's now a fishing and hunting guide and has the best office views ever. Sharing and teaching people about the beauty and bounty of the Chesapeake Bay is Captain Trent's passion. They say that if you enjoy what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.
