Captain Cole Svenson started fishing as soon as he could walk, accompanying his father on their 15-foot whaler at the time. Svenson won top junior angler titles and took home the Top Junior Angler for the State of New Jersey from 2001 to 2009 on the ASA Striper Circuit.
When he’s not fishing out of Brielle, NJ, Svenson is fishing down the East Coast, Jupiter FL, and various islands of the Bahamas. Svenson is also a Licensed Captain of the U.S. Coast Guard.
