This week I’m going to highlight one of our captains. In The next several weeks there will be a new captain to showcase. I figured I’d change up the usual reports just a bit. FYI, fishing was very good this week for all the captains. Fish cooperated once again. Bottom went well with Ajs and a few grouper. Plenty of triggers and lanes. The mighty king macks also started to make a steady appearance.
Captain Zach Shedd will be the first El Capitan to speak of. Zach is pushing roughly 3.5 years now with Fired Up. Coming in from North Carolina as a Sea Tow operator, he has relocated himself and his family to Port Canaveral. He literally put all his eggs in our basket. That’s honestly a lot of pressure on me, the owner, to provide the trips for him to survive. So far so good. lol Thank you Zach for all you do for us. You came with very little offshore/Canaveral experience but you are proving yourself well. Your skills (even your cast net) are improving, lol.
I’m always asked by a possible new captain “how much money will I make” or “how much work can I get?” I always say, “As hard as you wanna work, that’s what you’ll make.” Well Zach is hungry! He doesn’t say no to a trip! He’s making an amazing repeat customer basis already! Zach, I thank you for all you do and look forward to many more years with you. Heres a few fish from his last few trips.
