Fin Runner Sportfishing Charters

Capt. Brian Morris grew up in a sport fishing, commercial fishing, and world renowned boat building community on the Outer Banks of North Carolina some 48 years ago and has been immersed in that lifestyle and fishing ever since. He has fished all over the world, having cast his line in the east coast of the United States, Alaska, Micronesia, Panama, Baja Mexico, Hawaii, as well as in beautiful Southern California. His best decision in his life was to make a huge effort to fish around the world, learn new fisheries, and explore different cultures. He has been fishing Southern California for 17 years now and holds a USCG 100 tons master’s license. 

Your boat for the day is a May-craft built center console that measures a spacious 30 ft and is powered by two Yamaha four stroke 150HP engines. Capt. Brian had the boat built for one thing, and that is fishing. If there’s a big fish on, you can walk all the way around the entire boat to make sure it ends up in the fish box. Top of the line FURUNO electronics as well as SHIMANO and PENN tackle will ensure that you’re fishing with confidence!

Capt. Brian employs a wide range of fishing methods, including deep sea fishing, fishing with live bait and artificial lures, sight casting, Shark fishing, kite fishing, bottom fishing, bay/ inshore fishing, and spearfishing. He targets a wide range of species, including Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Mako Sharks, Yellowtail, Hallibut, Sea Bass, and many more. For any trips in Mexican Waters, it is mandatory for each customer to have his/her valid passport.

I grew up fishing for fun and work as a child. If we weren't fishing with my dad my mom would drop us off somewhere with our fishing rods and tackle and fish in the ocean, rivers, or sound until dark. Growing up in a fishing and boat building community really taught me the importance of the ocean and how it's food chain depends on we as a society to help sustain it. I love hunting for and catching fish but I also love teaching people about different species and how the food chain depends on each. At the ripe age of eight, I caught my first billfish in the Gulf Stream off the east coast. It was a sailfish and I knew from that instance that someday I would be a charter boat captain. Do what you love, love what you do. After working on all kinds of vessels from sport fishing yachts, container ships, to different types of commercial fishing vessels I've made being a charter boat captain my number one priority. At the age of 48, this is all I do for a living
