Dustin Klepacki began his fishing career at an early age of 13 when he fished in tournaments in Northern Illinois until he turned 20. Dustin took 2005 National Champion, 2007 National Team of the year and had many other victories. When he turned 19, he decided to move to Alaska and started working as a deckhand on a Halibut charter, concentrating on exploring the rivers in the Kenai peninsula. One thing led to another, and Dustin became a captain. He enjoys taking his guests out and providing the best service possible.
