Fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod, Captain Riley (or Cap’n Goop as his friends call him) hails from Vero Beach, FL and also counts fishing as a hobby as well as a career. Along with surfing and skydiving, fishing makes up a trio of hobbies that spell out a life-well-lived for this young Captain.
USCG licenced as a Captain at the age of 19, Spencer has taken clients on over 400 fishing excursions, with no plans to slow down anytime soon. His first (and worst) job was as a busboy at a Pizza restaurant and that was all it took to make him realize that a job that did not include a boat beneath his feet, was not the future he was looking for.
Spencer found a home at Ocean Surfari fishing charters in St. Thomas and is not looking back. “The USVI is like a slice of paradise here on earth,” says Spencer. “I’ve been around a bit, like Hawaii, Panama, Nicaragua and I can tell you, this is the place to fish. Inshore and offshore, we have it all here in ther US Virgin Islands.” Fishing aboard the Backlash or Hitman on a deep water drop is an experience of a lifetime.
