About the Captain

Jeremy Furtado
Winthrop, Massachusetts, United States
Member since March 2016
My grandfather and dad were both fishermen. At the age of 3, I was playing with lobsters while they dived for them. I love fishing and my favorite thing is tournaments. I'm not picky – in 2015 we placed in every tournament we entered. We even went to the Cape and won first place in 4 out of 6 categorizes.
