Member since October 2018 Gulf Shores, United States
Background
Captain Mac Bankey moved to Gulf Shores 15 years ago. He’s been fishing his whole life and decided to make a living out of his passion. The greatest pleasure in this job is seeing people smiling as they catch their first fish – "Nothing better than to see a child reel in their fish!" He participated in Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo every year for the past 5 years.
Techniques
I do a lot of drift fishing, an depends on what we are fishing for! Whether were using live bait fishing or using lures.
