Captain Peter started his professional fishing career aboard the original 31ft JC ‘Overproof’. Although it was a smaller boat, Capt Peter was able to compete with larger fishing boats around Bermuda. Over the years he has placed well in a range of tournaments, and in 2002, he caught the largest Blue Marlin (906lbs) and the largest Wahoo (102lbs) of the season. Aboard the current and larger ‘Overproof’, Capt Peter reeled in a 641lbs for the 2014 Blue Marlin World Cup - unfortunately it was under 30lbs shy of winning.

We took a Cruise to Bermuda the first week of June.  Overproof arranged for a cab to pick us up at the dock and bring us right to their door.  Morning was cloudy with thunderstorms but about an hour after we started fishing the clouds went away and the rest of the day was sunny.  We started off catching Tuna and Wahoo and did this up until around noon.  Then they set us up on all outriggers to see if they could catch us some larger fish.  Within an hour we were able to get a Marlin on the line.  We were very fortunate as the Marlins had just started to come into season.  Peter estimated the Marlin to be between 300 and 350#!  It was an awesome fight!  After we reeled in the Marlin they set us up for some Groupers and we landed a bunch!  Great trip!  Cant wait to do this again!
