Captain
Marty Starling

Member since June 2015 Orange Beach, United States
Background
Captain Marty has been fishing these waters for over 25 years. He loves making educational trips, where he can teach people all there is to know about fish. He’s a 4th generation commercial fisherman, so he pretty much grew up on the water. Capt. Marty loves seeing people enjoy themselves on his boat, the looks on their faces when they catch a huge fish, and showing them the amazing scenery. Marty grew up tournament fishing, fished up and down the whole east coast, and even went to Hawaii when he was 20 to fish for Marlin. He considers himself to be a professional, he’s knowledgable and willing to explain everything to his guests. He likes to feel his guests out and try to tailor their trips to what he feels they’ll enjoy the most. He says fishing is what gets him out of the bed in the morning, he’s really passionate about it and not in the business for the money. He wakes up thinking what fish he’s gonna catch and what kind of adventure he’s gonna have with his clients.
