About the Captain

Worth Farrington
Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, United States
Member since October 2017
I grew up fishing inshore and offshore from a very young age with my father and both of my Grandfathers. I grew up in Emerald Isle, North Carolina where you can say that the love of the outdoors and fishing was instilled in me early in life. I moved to Wilmington, to attend The University of North Carolina at Wilmington before transferring to North Carolina State University and earning a Civil Engineering Degree. Every summer during college I would mate on offshore charter and private boats along the NC Coast. After a couple of years working in the Civil Engineering Field, I decided to devote my life to what I love doing: Fishing. For the last six years I have been working as a professional Captain and Mate for some of the best offshore fishermen in NC. In my spare time I enjoy surfing and inshore fishing with friends and family.
