Captain
Rodney Chapman

Member since July 2016 Freeport, United States
Background
Captain Rodney has been a Coast Guard licensed captain since he was 18 years old, and holds a 50-ton master's 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
Captain Rodney and his crew fish in many different ways and styles depending on what they feel will give them the best chance of landing the targeted species. They do prefer to fish whenever possible so that every angler has a rod in their hand.
