Captain
Steve Goosen

Member since February 2017 St. Francis Bay, South Africa
Background
Captain Steve Goosen has a treasure trove of fishing experience under his belt, as he's been a charter captain for over two decades. He says that he was made for the sea and that he isn't afraid to go out to the deeper waters in search of the large pelagic trophy fish. His favorite thing about being a charter captain is the fact that his office is outdoors and that he gets to come to the fresh smell of the ocean every single day.
Techniques
Yellowfin Tuna is Captain Steve's favorite fish to catch, as it gives an incredible fight when you finally hook one, making the catch truly worth something.
