Hi from Captain Nick. A fifth generation fisherman hailing from a long heritage of ship captains and harbor masters on the Mississippi River, the Boston Harbor, and England. You can say fishing is in my blood. I’ve been fishing since I could walk, and haven’t taken many breaks since then. I grew up fishing speckled trout and redfish down in New Orleans before moving up to Boston 14 years ago. Since then I’ve been fishing the Massachusetts area in both saltwater and freshwater, from the North Shore down to Cape Cod and the Islands.
Outdoor education has been a big part of my life and outside of fishing I am also a certified sailing instructor
, having 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, rivers, ponds, lakes, and reservoirs looking for bass and trout. Bordering on insane, I’ll fish year round in the Northeast (yes, even in -10F temperatures) and head down to Louisiana or Florida on a regular basis to chase redfish, snook, and tarpon.
