Captain
Rodney Chapman

Member since July 2016 Freeport, United States
Background
Capt. Rod has been a Coast Guard licensed captain since he was 18 years old, and holds a 50 ton masters license. He started working on a charter boat at the age of 10 in the state of Maine, where he grew up living on small island with his Grandfather Lou.
Techniques
We fish many different ways and styles depending on what we feel will give us the best chance of landing the targeted species. We do prefer to fish whenever possible so that every angler has a rod in their hand.
