Captain Brian is a local, and he has been fishing since he was 8 years old. He decided to pursue his passion and recently became a licensed captain. Fishing is what he loves most, and he enjoys being able to take out people who can’t fish on their own or don’t have the knowledge to do so. He really enjoys giving people a great experience, and nothing makes him happier than the smiles on people's faces when they catch a prized fish. He is also a firefighter. He’s been a firefighter-paramedic for 6 years. He participated in the First Responder Games tournament for firefighters, police, and military. Last time his team placed 4th. "I have been fishing since I can remember, and I grew up fishing with family and friends. I lived in Pasco County my entire life and know the waters like my own backyard."
