Title: 1st Mate
Brent grew up in Rocky Mount, NC and has been fishing since he was a kid, when you could still catch stripers, trout, and spanish mackerel in the Pamlico River. He graduated from Duke University in 1987, then returned to UNC - Chapel Hill to earn an MBA in 1991.
Brent has fished for king mackerel for over 22 years, but didn't realize it was possible to actually catch a king over ten pounds during a tournament until he started fishing with the magical Sea Drag'n Fishing Team in 2000. Brent lives in Fairfax, VA with his wife Sarah and his two sons, Coleman (10 years old) and Chris (7 years old), both aspiring junior anglers!
He works as a management consultant for Deloitte, helping his Federal Government clients use technology to improve their operations. Brent has no qualms about spending as much effort driving down south to get to the Sea Drag'n as he does getting to the fish. This photo is of Brent helping Al Morris III hoist a 28 pounder for 4th place at the 2009 Raleigh Saltwater Sportfishing Club tournament.
