Captain
Justin Ragsdale

Member since April 2016 Newport, United States
Background
With a lifetime of fishing experience ranging from babbling Mountain Trout Streams to Gulf Stream waters my love for fishing has been with me since the age of 5. After graduation from college with a degree in Biology my first post school job brought money and my first of many boats opening up a whole new chapter in my fishing story. I enjoy all manners of angling and have always enjoyed fishing and sharing that experience with others. It was always nice to be the one catching, but I soon developed a love for putting other people on fish and seeing the joy it brings to their soul. It was this love that brought me to leave my well paying manufacturing job to earn my living on the water guiding and chartering fishing trips.
Techniques
I love it all! Casting, Jigging, Trolling, Drifting, Artificials, Live Bait, Dead Bait it makes no difference, get tight!
