Simply put, Captain Sloan has been preparing for life as a charter captain ever since he was a kid. His father started taking him out on the water when he was 3 years old, and from then on, his passion for fishing just grew stronger. He loves nothing more than being behind the wheel of his boat, guiding people on fishing trips, and puts all his passion into helping them land some prized fish and having fun while doing it!
