Background
Captain Ben O’Connor is a native of Destin, Florida. At the age of 10, Ben began working as a second mate on charter boats. After graduating the University of South Alabama, he worked as an IT guy for a real estate investment trust in Atlanta. He then moved back to Destin in 1999, where he started an insurance and investment business while continuing to go fishing 3 or 4 days a week with his father. In 2006, Ben sold the business and spent two years going back and forth to Cosa Rica. And only after having worked on a few charter and commercial boats, Captain Ben decided to join the 100 Proof crew.
