Captain
Rodney Harper

Member since May 2016 Freeport, United States
Background
I was laid off in May 2016 from the oilfield and at the same time, my son was also diagnosed with cancer. I immediately had to find an alternative resource for my family to survive. I've had "Revelry" (my 27' Catamaran) since 2012 and figured that I must sell her to make ends meet until I found another job. My wife told me that I should put the boat to work with my love of fishing. I had met Captain Scott at a networking mixer in the Woodlands while we both still worked in the oilfield. He had his captain's license so we talked about chartering the boat, although, at the time I didn’t really care much for the idea because I didn't want to lose my love of fishing. However, it didn't take long after my wife convinced me to get to work. In the first 5 months of 2016, we fished with over 1,000 customers. We now have 6 boats in the fleet!! I am a USCG and state of Texas licensed guide, a certified Weighmaster (IGFA/state record certification), and Texas Director of Saltwater Tournaments.
Techniques
We can troll, deep drop, drift, pop, jig, chunk or flat line for any specific species of your choice. We specialize in bait pitching to those curious fish like Wahoo, Mahi, and Cobia as well. It's your call and we will cater the trip to your desires and preference of species.
