Captain Josh moved to the famous little town of Algoma around 1984 with his mother and brother. His passion for fishing started in 1988 when his mom took him for the fall run of salmon. He remembers trying to tackle the monster fish that were the same size as him! Every chance he had, he would be fishing. His summers were spent on the pier. In the fall, you'd find him in the river and creeks chasing trout and salmon. He was always proud of his catch and happily showed his mother the catch of the day.
He remembers the summer his mom bought a boat and they got into trolling on the lake. His mother would always take him and his friends fishing on her boat. He says "That is when my passion for trolling on the big pond got out of control!"
Becoming a Captain was Josh's dream from a young age. With the help of a friend, he got a job scrubbing boats at on of the local sport fishing businesses. He had started at the bottom of the totem pole but soon found himself as a first mate. He spent many winters working with commercial fishermen. After about 15 years as a first mate, he became captain! Josh has been a captain for 7 years now and is looking forward to seeing you on your next summer adventure!
