Captain
Jim Matias

Member since April 2016 Kenosha, United States
Background
Having fished all his life, Captain Jim decided to make a profession out of his passion in 2008. He knew that he just loved being on the water and spending every day doing what he loves was never going to be an issue. In fact, it's even better to do it with customers, as he gets to share his enthusiasm and skills with others, and he gets to see the smiles on their faces.
