Capt. Information

Captain Wally Trayah

Captain Wally is a prominent figure in the Brunswick County fishing industry. Wally developed his passion for fishing at an early age. He would spend his summer breaks with him grandfather, along with other recognized fisherman in the area. Being submersed in a culture of local fishermen since 1985, Wally absorbed the knowledge he needed to turn his passion into a career.

By the young age of 18, Wally earned his 50 ton master license and set out to earn a degree in Marine Biology. While enrolled he decided that commercial fishing was where we would put his efforts to pursue his dream of becoming a life-long fisherman.
