Captain Dustin Strehl started fishing at a young age. He grew up in Port Monmouth, NJ and fished down at the Belford Co-op with his life long friend, Johnny Adubato on Johnny's dad's boat, the "Johnny Boy." Dustin got his boating license and first boat at the age of 13 and fished the local waters. At the age of 16 he got his first job as a commercial fisherman on his neighbor's bunker boat. It was then he realized his passion for fishing. He has worked on many boats and fished a lot of tournaments up and down the East Coast, including the ASA, American Striper Association, where he learned many different techniques on fishing for striped bass. Dustin worked as a Mate on charter vessels before starting his own business. In November 2016, Dustin caught the Fish of a Lifetime, a 22.5 lb Tog. He now holds the IGFA line class World Record for 20 lb test line. Trips normally run 6-8 hours but you'll often times hear him say, "I don't punch a clock".
