Captain Matt's passion for fishing and Hunting is unquestionable. Born and raised in the Northwest, Matt has experience in marine services, automotive mechanics, fishing guiding and hunting qualifying Matt as a true outdoor guide with the ability to keep his craft in top running condition and adapt to the challenges of changing conditions. Matt's experience allows him to stay on the migrating Salmon as they move through Puget Sound towards the many spawning streams and rivers that these Salmon are eventually heading to.

Matt's location on Kistap Penninsula in Bremerton (with optional Seattle pick up) provides more options for Fish Finders Charters customers to choose the best location for them.
