Member since May 2017 Los Angeles, United States
Background
Captain John F began driving boats when he was a teenager back in the 1980s. But John wasn’t always a captain. He worked as an IT Manager in the television and music business in Hollywood and founded an internet startup company. But his lifelong passion and love for fishing and boating prevailed and John decided to start his own charter company. That’s how LA Sportfishing was born. Having over a decade of local knowledge, John enjoys introducing his friends and family to many different techniques and hot spots. His dedication and patience have made him a real threat to the fish!
