Captain Scott's passion is chasing Trophy Walleye on Lake Erie and watching the tail-walking antics of steelhead. He really enjoys taking other folks out fishing and teaching them all the aspects of fishing this big lake.
The captain is a bit of a geek too and likes his electronics, as you can see from the electronics listed on the Gear page. The Privateer is arguably the most high-tech outfitted charter fishing boat on Erie. We are also involved in the process of developing the next generation sport fishing gear and electronics under our privately held company Privateer Sports.
Captain Scott is USCG licensed captain, Ohio licensed guide, fully insured, and owner of the Privateer.

Brett first fished the Privateer late in the 2013 season. I invited him to join me on a "self" fishing day with plans to stock my own freezer with walleye as I had fished all season for clients and had not kept a single fish for myself. Brett was so impressive running gear that I asked him if he would be willing to fill-in first mate when Jonah had to go back to college or needed a day off. It is very evident that Brett has quite a bit of Lake Erie experience and is one of the fastest and most efficient folks I have ever seen running big-water gear on Erie.
2016 update: Brett has been spending quite a bit of time in the offseason fishing in sunny Florida while the rest of the Privateer team is freezing somewhere North of that warm state. Ultimately this will be to the benefit to all of us, as guess where Privateer is looking to expand when the great lakes get too cold for our tastes...
2015 update: Brett has received his USCG Captain license and will captain the Privateer when the owner (Capt. Stephen) needs a day off. (yes, a day "off" from fishing...)
