Captain
Nick Thorstenson

Member since September 2019 Goodland, United States
Background
Captain Nick is a native of Marco Island, Fl, meaning that he practically grew up on the waters around the 10,000 Islands. He got hooked on fishing in his youth while cruising the backwaters, discovering the riches in the creeks and rivers. He spent as much as possible on the water, increasing his knowledge bit by bit, and even worked through college as a charter captain, and likes nothing more than sharing his fishing experience with others. He promotes conservation in the area, and always respects local regulations, in the hope that fishing may long continue in this corner of Florida.
Techniques
Fishing with live bait has always been one of my favorite and most effective approaches to finding some of the most allusive and sought after species this region of Florida has to offer. Along with fishing with live baits, artificial jigs can be productive and a fun way to get the lines tight on that trophy catch.
