Captain Brian has acquired quite a reputation as a shark fisherman.

For several years he helped provide live specimens for the Mote Marine Laboratory's many shark studies. To insure the maximum survivability of these valuable fish, Captain Brian found that the best approach was to capture them bare handed under water using a strong grip on their pectoral fins. He would literally guide them to the surface. His arm and lower torso bear several reminders of this episode in his life. Don't try this technique unless you have had professional shark wrangling experience.  We still take people shark fishing! These days, however, it's mostly catch and release. The best months for shark fishing are "May through September."

Do you want to wrangle?
In addition to providing specimens for Mote Marine Laboratory, Captain Brian has been the source of live sharks for several feature-length movies.
