Captain Spencer was raised on the Big island of Hawaii by John and Christina Chute. His dad loved fishing, so he grew up on the water, both fresh and salt, watching and learning his techniques and presentations.
He caught hid first King salmon when he was 9 years old on the Feather River in California. He was side drifting eggs and surrounded by a horde of other anglers. Spencer remembers yelling at the top of his lungs “Fish On, get out of my way!” as his fish ripped 50 yards up river. From then on he was hooked on king salmon. “Little did I know then that I would be fortunate enough to enjoy such an amazing career 20 years later watching guests on my boat yell the exact same thing while running circles around the Larus, as they for the first time battle a big chrome king. Finding a hot salmon bite all off on our own is something an angler has to experience and savor at least once in life. After that, all you’ll want to do is share that with others – there are no words to describe it.”
