Captain Kurt Harris grew up in Elmira has been fishing since he was 15 years old. He learned the trade from his father whom has been fishing these grounds for almost 50 years and has been running his own fleet since 2007. Like Tony and Bradley, Kurt is a volunteer fire fighter and has CPR and marine first aid certifications.

Captain "Handsome" Wayne Campbell brings a ton of experience to the company with over 30 years of fishing these same grounds that we hunt bluefin today! Wayne, born and raised on the northern side of eastern PEI, has fished many other species in addition to bluefin tuna, such as lobster, herring, mackerel, and scallop. He also holds his CPR and marine first aid certifications.
