Captain
Ron King

Member since February 2016 Sidney, Canada
Background
Captain Ron started commercial fishing on the west coast of Canada with his dad when he was 11 years old. The captain got his own commercial fishing boat when he was 21. They mainly fished for Salmon and Halibut on the coast. Captain Ron started whale watching in 1995 and has just built his new boat for fishing with the help of his 84-year old dad. They rebuilt it themselves – the captain can show you all about the new boat while you are out fishing! You are going to target Crab and prawns like the Deadliest Catch with 100 traps on board. Come fish with the pros!
Techniques
Simply, Captain Ron and his crew are the pros.
