About the Captain

Ryan Fifield
Salem, New York, United States
ID & License verified
Member since September 2016
Captain Ryan grew up in Salem, a small town in Washington County in Upstate, New York. Growing up he spent more days on the water and in the woods than he did at school. At an early age, his grandpa and dad would bring him down to the local Trout steam where they would teach him the tricks of the trade and how to outsmart that wily Trout. During the summer months, he spent time with his family camping and fishing at Crown Point, NY on the banks of Lake Champlain. At age 16, Captain Ryan’s parents bought him a bass boat and encouraged him to start fishing tournaments. That exploded his passion for Bass fishing. After winning numerous tournaments, he knew he found something that he wanted to share with others. He started taking out family and friends on lakes like Cossayuna, Saratoga, and Champlain. He shared with these folks what he knew about the art of fishing. The smiles on their faces after a successful catch fish on the techniques that he taught them proved to be priceless for him.
