Captain
Brad Curtsinger

Member since June 2014 New Smyrna Beach, United States
Background
Captain Brad was born and grew up on a river and was always told by his friends that he should be a captain. He has now been fishing the Florida waters professionally for 17 years around areas such as the world-famous Mosquito Lagoon, the coast line running from Daytona to New Smyrna beach, and offshore deep fishing up to 40 miles. For the last 11 years he has devoted himself full-time to offering guided charters, doing what he loves. He uses all the knowledge he has learnt over the years to make sure you're in with the best possible chance of finding fish.
Techniques
Capt. Brad loves artificial lure fishing the most ,but he loves live bait fishing as well especially when the bite is down. He finds having the right bait and presentation is the most important aspect of fishing.
