Elliot Neese is the youngest Captain in the fleet. Last year, Elliott aimed to prove to the fishing world that he was not only ready to be a successful captain, but a successful boat owner as well with his purchase of the Saga. He began fishing at age 12 and, at 19, ran his first cod boat. He says he runs a tight ship and expects hard work and dedication from his crew.
Elliot fishes eight to 10 months a year and gets through the long, grueling hours by looking at pictures of his two young children.
