History with AU: Met Tom Ohaus in 1993 after coming to Sitka with my brother to work as a deckhand for another charter company. After deckhanding on Tom’s boat for two seasons, Tom decided to go out on his own and started Angling Unlimited. After a third season of deckhanding, I got my captains license.
History of fishing: My first fishing memories are with my brothers in the creek near our farm in Minnesota. I used to ask my Grandma to tell me her big fish story over and over. I’ve always been entertained by our finny friends!
Hobbies/Interests: Fishing, hunting and being a dad!
Favorite fish and how do you like it cooked: Fresh Alaskan King Salmon on the grill.
What is it you like most about AU: Creating precious memories, watching dreams come true and working with the outstanding AU Crew. I have been so fortunate to have met so many wonderful people over the years. I consider several guests to be great friends. I look forward to many more seasons, spending time on the water doing what I love, with people I can laugh with.
What do you do in the off season?: Sleep in until 7am, hunt, fish, spend quality time with family, attempt to get to the end of the honey do list and get AU coordinated and ramped up for the next season.
