Member since January 2022
As a young angler, Captain Jeffery's family introduced him to saltwater fishing. This lifelong passion was reignited in 2015 when he purchased his first offshore boat. In 2020, Captain Jeff took a sabbatical from his career as a firefighter and started a saltwater guide service that is now known as PacificPond Charters. Captain Jeff is passionate and committed in providing a safe and fun environment for anglers of all ages to enjoy saltwater fishing. His favorite fishery is Pacific Halibut, one of the only big game fisheries in Oregon. There is something exciting about fishing for a fish that can be over 100 pounds.
