About Your Guide

Captain James's wife and he built a life from the ground up and made a living out of owning and operating their family farm. They raised three kids the way God intended and after two of the three moved out, the captain and his wife then started to reflect on the life they made. After years of intensive labor, Captain James decided that it was time for a change. He has fished for the entirety of his life and when he learned that he could make a career of it, he dove right in. The captain began to spend time in the Rockport area and stuck around for about 5 years before making the decision that becoming fisherman was a career he would like to pursue.
