                            Dale's Boat RUBY D

 The U.S. Navy brought me here in 1976 where I served as Navigator on the USS Moctobi out of Everett Washington long before there was the current Naval base there


I am  married to my wife Patty with two great kids, both graduates of the University of Washington. 

I began recreational fishing in the early 1980's. The first time out with a great friend I hooked a fish,  I knew it was big. Being ill prepared we had no net. After fighting the fish, bringing him next to the boat my buddy reaches over and grabs him by hand and heaves him in the boat. 20 pound KING SALMON!


That hooked me on the whole fishing thing. I decided fishing was too much fun not to do it professionally.  Therefore I did a few seasons in Alaska Chartering and then the past few here in Puget Sound. I was working for other charter companies running boats but decided that running my own boat, my own boat was the way to go.
