Capt. Donnie
Capt. Donnie
Capt. Donnie Jr. is a second-generation professional fisherman and boat captain with 20 years of experience. He has been fishing since he was a toddler and has been first mate for his father Donnie Sr. since he was a young boy. Donnie Jr. grew up "on the water" as he accompanied his father as he made the rounds throughout Southeast Louisiana's most popular fishing rodeos each summer in their boat, the legendary "Sea Cruiser". Even though the Sea Cruiser has had many alterations from sporty cabin cruiser to super fast cigar-style fishing boats, the name is legendary amongst tournaments such as the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo.
