About Your Guide

Captain Derek is a young captain with lots of experience. This means he has the drive and passion that a lot of captains can loose over time, and the knowledge to get you hooked into quality fish. When you book a trip with him he's not there just to pass the rod off to you either. He will share all of his knowledge of the wildlife, fish habits, and fun stories while you're out on the water with him!
