Captain
Zed Layson

Member since February 2014 Bridgetown, Barbados
Background
I have been fishing for years: I grew up as a spear fisherman and professional surfer and now I own and operate a successful surf school in Barbados. I started offering fishing trips as well as surfing a few years ago, partly because of the enjoyment it gives me, and also so that the guests staying at our apartments can get the taste of more adventurous activities.
Techniques
I like fishing for Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, either on the bar or offshore. Barracudas are fun too when the Wahoo aren't biting. I recently got into Marlin fishing and it is slowly taking over as my favourite.
