Captain Ryan – Young Fisherman from Gloucester

Captain Ryan

Ryan fishes year round out of the maritime port of Gloucester, Massachusetts.  First allowed aboard a commercial lobster boat at the age of 11 with a student license, Ryan was 4 years old when he first “play set” lobster traps in a little skiff.  As a committed and hard working lobster fisherman today, Ryan has grown to fit perfectly with his boat name No Excuses.

When asked about what makes him happiest about lobster fishing for a living, this college graduate speaks passionately about working in a natural environment.  “Taking in everything around you and visually seeing the weather…I see about every sunrise and every sunset.”  For those of us with office jobs, this sounds pretty sweet!
