Brandan Brickhouse is the first mate on Little Shell Charters, who is a real threat to any fish. Fishing has always been his lifelong passion. Brandan can be found on the waters almost every day of the year. If he is not taking his friends and clients out, he goes fishing for himself. Brandan prefers catching whatever patrols the waters, so choosing one favorite species is an impossible task!
