Captain Nick:

Hi from Captain Nick. A fifth generation fisherman with ship captains on both the Mississippi River, Boston Harbor to England, and a former Boston Harbormaster in my heritage, you can say fishing is in my blood. I’ve been fishing since before I could walk, and haven’t taken many breaks since then. I grew up fishing speckled trout and redfish down in the New Orleans before moving up to Boston 13 years ago. Since then I’ve been fishing the Massachusetts area in both saltwater and freshwater, from the north shore down to the cape and islands.
Outdoor education has been a big part of my life for a long time and outside of fishing I am also a certified sailing instructor and taught sailing in the Boston Harbor. I’ve done major offshore yacht races and have been through multiple Safety at Sea courses and seminars. When not on the water, I would lead outdoor trips in hiking, rock climbing, and ice climbing in and around the northeast. I am CPR and First Aid certified, and up until recently was a certified EMT, Wilderness First Responder, and also an AHA certified CPR/First Aid instructor (BLS Healthcare Provider).
While salt is my passion, it’s not uncommon to find me fly rod in hand exploring the freshwater creeks and rivers looking for trout or the ponds, lakes, and reservoirs looking for bass and trout. Bordering on insane, I’ll fish year round in the north east (yes, even in -10F temperatures) and head down to Louisiana or Florida on a regular basis to chase redfish, snook, and tarpon.
