Robert Small

Member since June 2017 Calabash, United States
Background
In my youth, I served in the Navy and you could consider that's the time that I 'cut my teeth' on the ocean. It was clearly love at first sight. After leaving the Navy, I trained and spent some time as a Diesel mechanic, but it wasn't long before the ocean came calling. In 1974, I started my own charter fishing company and I haven’t looked back since. When I saw our boat ‘The Blue Fin’, I knew it would be the flagship of our fleet. Designed by the Navy to transport naval offices from ship to ship while at dock, it was built to be a tank. Considered to be one of the most stable rough water vessels, The Blue Fin is a very safe boat. This is my 45th year of operation. That's 45 years of knowledge and experience that translates into the best fishing experiences for our clients. Blue Fin Fishing Charters is committed to providing the best possible experience. You want the gills, we have the skills!
Techniques
I specialize in Shark fishing, trolling, bottom fishing. Our boat the "Blue Fin" has outriggers and downriggers. Dual fighting chairs with teak covered decking. Safety railing all around with a swim platform on the stern.
