About the Captain

Member since October 2015
Well, it all start it when my grandfather took me on a fishing trip on his little 15' homemade type boat when I was little. I knew then that I liked fishing and everything around it. I've been hooked on fishing ever since. All the Runaway Sportfishing team is local to the area and have been working on boats for decades.
