Joaquin Cruz

Member since July 2017 Hagåtña, Guam
Background
Captain Joaquin has been fishing since he was five years old and has always loved being on the water with his family as a kid. His family is responsible for his deep love of fishing as they, too, are fishermen. Fast forward to his adulthood, Joaquin has become a captain and a charter operator in order to share his passion for fishing with like minded anglers. He loves fishing for Yellowfin, Wahoo, and Marlin, and can be found on the water every day - even when not operating a charter or taking family fishing. Captain Joaquin has participated in and placed highly in a number of fishing tournaments.
