About Captain Freddie
Captain Freddie was born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard Island, located off the coast of Massachusetts.
Being born on a small island in the Atlantic Ocean, Fred began Shell fishing and Hook and Line fishing as soon as he could walk. Fred had a passion for fishing and catching Stripers, Blue Fish, Fluke, Bonito and Albacore Tuna along the shores and beaches of the Vineyard.
As he came into his teen years he began to fancy Offshore Fishing and catching White Marlin, Yellow fin Tuna, Swordfish, Maco and Thresher Sharks.
Fred commercially and recreationaly fished throughout his teen years. At the encouragement of his Dad to get a “Reel Job”, Fred pursued a career working with handicapped youth. This also enabled him to continue fishing.
Schools are seasonal and so is fishing in New England. After working with youth throughout New England and fishing from Maine to Rhode Island he retired as Vice Principal of a Middle School to pursue his first passion, Fishing.
At that time Fred owned an Offshore Charter Boat, Reel Job, and was partnered in a local Tackle Shop called “Sharks Landing” on Oak Bluffs Harbor, location of the Monster Shark Tournament. But what would he do in the winter months? What else, discover Islamorada!
For the past 10 years Captain Freddie has been fishing both Offshore and Back Country in the Florida Keys year round. When he discovered the Keys he sold everything and settled in Islamorada. For the past 5 years Fred has fished primarily the Back Country. Many of Captain Freddie’s customers are families.
Given his background in Education, parents feel safe sending their children fishing with Fred while they have a “little husband and wife time” in the beautiful FL Keys. Kids kind of like him too.
