"Fishing isn't my job, it's my life"

Captain Duane

Raised in San Diego, in small community called Point Loma, also known as the sportfishing capital of the west coast, Captain Duane "Diego" Mellor has had fishing and salt water running through his blood since day one. From his early youth days of assisting at the bait barge, to working his way up the ranks on the sport boats, Duane started as a young "pin head" and has steadily climbed the ladder to where he is now, earning himself a solid reputation as one of the most consistent and hard-working charter boat captains on the West Coast. With a vast knowledge of local Southern California waters, stretching all the way south to the tip of Baja, Duane believes in fishing as hard as he can, while paying extra close attention to detail and customer service. Averaging between 280-300 days on the water each year, it goes without saying… Fishing isn't his job, it's his life.
