Member since February 2017 Pompano Beach, United States
Background
Captain Shawn Safris has over 20 years of fishing experience. He has been passionate about fish since childhood. He enjoys being on the water and seeing the smile on a kid's face after reeling in a fish. Shawn is never in a hurry to get off the boat, always keen on spending a few extra hours trolling for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo or Tuna.
Techniques
I like to stay until dinner is in the boat. Never in a hurry to get off the water. Mostly like to troll for dolphin, wahoo or tuna.. but if the bite is slow we can always drift some wrecks and reefs for some dinner
