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 43 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, 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 13 years now, and holds a USCG 100 tons Masters license. 

The Fin Runner is a 2014 custom Carolina built center console that measures a spacious 29 ft and is powered by two 2013 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 Raymarine electronics as well as Avet and Penn tackle will ensure that you’re fishing in style.

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.

About the Captain

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 43, this is all I do for a living.

Brian with Finrunner was awesome!  Easy to book, very communicative, trip was fun and Brian was great with our kids who had never fished before.  Exactly what we were hoping for! Highly recommend Finrunner!

After looking at the reviews of the different guides and boats on FishingBooker for what ever reason I kept coming back to Brian and the Fin Runner and I’m sure glad I did.  As soon as I booked our reservation Brain called to let me know he had received it and would be contacting me later with all the details, which he did. We had booked for in the morning but Brain asked if we could change to the afternoon, which was great for my wife since she isn’t a morning person.  He was at the marina on time with a huge smile on his face and made as feel like family the minute he introduced himself.  Once underway is was very professional but yet still a hoot.  He explained where and what we going to fish for and told us what to expect.  He also told us (which we know because we do a lot of trout fishing on our own boat back home) that fish are finicky and just because they are at one spot in the morning they may not be at that same spot in the afternoon.  Brain worked his fanny off to get us to the right spots and he did.  We didn’t catch a lot of fish but we caught fish and had a great time doing it.  This guy is a true professional and such a fun person to fish with, he is worth every penny and then some.  I will defiantly fish with him again, as we had a great time and we consider him a friend.

Thanks so much for fishing with me guys! I had a great time. Also, taking your wife Susie fishing for her birthday was the best thing a man can do for his wife. It was great to see her laughing while out fishing us with different species of bass and a halibut
