Harold Staples

Member since May 2016 Destin, United States
Background
My father was a fisherman and built his own boats with each one getting larger . He built them starting in New Orleans, Louisiana and then Biloxi, Mississippi. I helped him build the last several boats. They were all charter boats. I started fishing with my father from an early age which was before I became a teenager. I love fishing and my children have their own charter boats now also. OCTOBER RODEO IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! EXCITING FUN SO BOOK YOUR TRIP SOON!
Techniques
The Al-Lin mostly bottom fishes or we troll. The captain keeps up with what fish can be caught during the season year round and Captain Harold keeps up with the weather at all times in advance. The boat, Al-Lin, uses hook and line. We charge by the hour and you need to go at least 4 hours. From there, you can go as many hours as you want....from 4 hours to as many as 12 hours or anywhere in-between.
