Your crew will consist of one captain and one deckhand. The 3 to 1 ratio of fishermen to crew is hard to beat, giving us lots of time for hands on teaching.
Captain Mike, Owner
Clark has been chasing tuna since he was a child. He was raised in Southern California and spent most of his life devoted to catching tuna off of the coast of California and Mexico. Fishing is Clark’s life. He is happiest on the deck of a boat and is just as excited about the next fish as he was about the thousands that he has caught. Clark always has a smile on his face and always has time to help a newbie master livebait tuna fishing. He has caught nearly every species of pelagic fish from Costa Rica to Canada, and has won the Deep Canyon Challenge and competed in the IGFA Offshore World Championship. You will be very hard pressed to find anyone who loves to fish as much as Clark and who is as talented a fisherman. Clark also runs his own guiding business, guiding surf perch, bottom fishing, and clamming trips on the long beach peninsula. www.longbeachadventures.com
John has been chasing tuna and pelagic fish in the NW and Mexico for over 30 years. He was part of teams that won the Deep Canyon Challenge in 2014 and the Oregon Tuna Classic in 2016. John competed in the IGFA Offshore World Championship in 2015. John also has his captain's license, but would rather run the deck than drive the boat.. John is passionate about Albacore fishing and literally wrote the book on live bait tuna fishing, Livebait 101.

Deny, Chief Engineer
Deny is the guy who keeps everything working.
Deny is a boatwright and all around boat genius who is in charge Shake N Bake. He is the #1 reason why we have yet to lose a day to a mechanical issue (except when DirtyE hits things). Without Deny, the boat would spend a lot of time tied up to the dock rather than fishing.
