Captain
Thomas Hosselrode

Member since April 2019 Solomons, United States
Background
Captain Thomas Hosselrode has been fishing on the Chesapeake Bay since he was 5 years old. His step-dad use to take him out on his boat and he fell in love with the feeling of being out on the water and fishing. When he became old enough to commandeer on his own, Capt. Thomas bought his own boat and started off as a first mate. He eventually became a licensed captain and began running his own charter business. If there’s one thing that Capt. Thomas is really good at it, it’s putting his customers on some big Stripers! His passion is contagious and he really enjoys sharing his lifelong experiences and stories with others. Book your next fishing trip with Smokin’ Reelz and create some lasting memories on the Chesapeake Bay!
