Captain Salatiel Ku Caamal or Captain Salas fell in love with fishing when he was a young boy. He had his first fishing trip at the age of 7 and has been hooked ever since. His passion and curiosity have never stopped growing. Captain Salas has over 16 years of experience in different types of fishing. He is more than familiar with trolling, bottom fishing, jigging, casting and other techniques. Whenever Salas invites his guests to step aboard his boat, he works hard to make sure everyone feels like home. He is a proud father and a family-oriented person.
