Capt. Cary grew up fishing the Chesapeake Bay around Annapolis Md. At the age of 13 he started fishing offshore in the Atlantic Ocean.  He has fished up and down the east coast, from Ocean City, MD to Key West, Florida.  Cary has worked both as Captain and as a crew member on both private and charter boats up to 63' catching billfish, tuna and dolphin and other pelagic species. He has also been on winning teams in many tournaments. In 2005 he and his family moved to the Charlotte area; a long way away from the ocean.  The distance from the salty coast forced him to take "drastic measures", so he attended a Carolina Catfish Club meeting and listened to what the local lakes had to offer.  After that meeting he was determined to catch trophy catfish. Since then Cary and his partners have fished many catfish tournaments on Lake Wylie and the surrounding lakes.  He has had great success placing in and winning many tournaments. So come aboard with this experienced captain.
