Captain
John O'Hanlon

Member since March 2014 Palm Harbor, United States
Background
Captain John O'Hanlon has been fishing local waters for more than 35 years now. He started off by scuba diving at the age of 12 and has not looked back since. While he has retired from tournament fishing, he still has the know-how which he is more than happy to share with all his guests. His main goal is to make sure everyone on his boat has a memorable time.
Techniques
We use spinning rods and reels in most situations. We drift the flats and anchor depending on the species we are fishing for.
