About the Captain

David Johnson
Fernandina Beach, Florida, United States
Member since August 2016
I grew up in a commercial fishing family and have been on the water since birth. When I was 8 years old we moved onto a boat and I still live aboard a boat today. I landed my first job on a charter fishing boat at the age of 10 years old. I was licensed by the USCG at age 18 and fishing is my full-time job and passion.
