Captain
Derwyn Booker

Member since February 2021 Freeport, United States
Background
Derwyn's vast outdoor and business experience makes him qualified to select the boats, equipment, and most all the Captains that will make your Texas Deep Sea Fishing the best possible experience. Derwyn has fished almost his entire life. He began deep sea fishing in '91 and found himself hooked on the excitement of the deep blue seas and huge fish. His Captain career began in the mid-90s and continued until 2016 when he retired as an offshore Captain but continued to manage the charter business. And, furthermore, he did not retire from offshore fishing. He still pulls 20 lb Snapper and rocket Kings. Since 2016 he has owned a number of boats like a 33 ft World Cat, 30 ft Rampage, 28 Ft True World, 23 Ft Hydrasport Bay Bolt, 26 Ft Everglades, and of course the Glacier Bay Canyon Runner. He is an avid, addicted, waterfowler and owned/operated a Saskatchewan CA outfitting business for 10 years. He also founded Texas Fowlers, an online retailer, in 1998 and sold that business in 2020.
