Captain
Nelson Van Liere

Member since July 2017 Jacksonville, United States
Background
For most of my life, boating and fishing has been a hobby. Recently, after years of working in an office, I decided to become a Licensed Captain so that I could spend the next phase of my life doing and sharing with others the activities that I enjoy the most in life.
Techniques
Depending on recent fishing reports, I enjoy both bottom fishing and trolling. Bottom fishing produces such a variety of fish and is very relaxing. This type of fishing is great for adults and kids and is never dull. Trolling provides the excitement of the strike as the fish makes a run. Trolling live baits for kings or ballyhoo and artificials for wahoo, dolphin or tuna is also a lot of fun.
