Captain John has been driving boats since he was a teenager and has been fishing locally in LA for decades! The most rewarding part of running fishing charters is seeing someone catch one of their very first fish! I see the joy and elation on their face, and it allows me to relive the moment when I caught my first fish. I can't put a price on that experience, and I truly love sharing my passion with others!
