Member since March 2022
Capt. Harry's father got him into the sport at the age of three. He was amazed how a three-year-old kid would sit patiently and wait for a bite. That's when he said, "He's got it". Since then, Capt. Harry was hooked and that passion and dedication to learn and grow has never ended. He became a pinhead and then a deckhand on the boats up north learning different techniques and cutting fish as well as absorbing how to be a good captain like his mentors. Customer service is key on his boat. The captain wants you to have a great time and to catch fish! He's sponsored by Okuma to provide all your gear. He'll also tie and supply all your tackle and bait so all you have to bring is food and warm clothes. Capt. Harry started a cooking and fishing show called Boat Burgers in 2019 showing the world California's fishery and amazing food on the water. At the end of 2020, he started studying for a captain's license and in 2021 achieved the goal and bought the Mystic Queen built by Don Blackman.
