Fred Laager

Member since November 2015 St. Augustine, United States
Background
Captain Fred Laager grew up on Long Island, New York where he worked in his dad's fishing and hunting store and catching Rainbow Trout, Striped Bass, and Flounder. He's also rigged and sailed boats through his youth. Finally, 11 years ago he fell in love with the quality of the local water around St. Augustine and decided to stick around. Now, he's a full-time guide and is more than happy to share his passion for inshore fishing with all of his guests.
