Captain
Shaun Uyeda

Member since February 2019 San Diego, United States
Background
I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. My love for fishing began at the age of 5 when my dad would take me to Chollas Lake and Lake Jennings almost every weekend. When I was about 10 years old, my uncle bought a sportfisher and once we started saltwater fishing, I never looked back. After witnessing my father fight brain cancer for 17 months before ultimately passing in 2018, and my uncle passing a few years before I was reminded that life is short and should be spent doing what I love and am passionate about. I decided to finally take the leap I had been wanting to for so long and obtained my 6 Pack Captains License. I also own and operate Advanced Wiring Services since 2011. I have over 15 years in marine and auto electrical and mechanical experience, making me extremely boat savvy. I am happily married and have one son that I can't wait to teach to fish!
Techniques
When inshore fishing I like to find structures and do live bait drifts. Live bait works the best. Also at the same time have another angler jigging the bottom with lure or possibly some dead squid. I like to have a mix going to see what is working best for the day. When Offshore fishing I like to get out in the general zone and then put out the 4 trolling rods. One for each angler. While trolling I look for Birds, Patties, any signs of life. Once we find fish or a fishy area we will fish with live bait. I also throw scoops of live bait out in to the water to attract the fish to us. While doing that or depending the situation for example a tuna boil, I like to also have anglers casting jigs to the fish and catching them while retrieving. There are multiple styles to do when fishing and I am always geared for all situations.
