SEAREAPER CHARTER, Captain George Brooks

SeaReaper Charters was developed in 2006 when Captain George retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Being a life long fisherman and living on the shores of Lake Ponchairtrain, the Captain thought that It would be a win - win situation to help children learn a hobby that had brought him, his children and most fishermen a lifetime of pleasure and special memories.

Having caught his first fish at the age of 4 and having a grandfather and father who lived for fishing, Captain George was hooked at an early age.  His belief that fishing is not only a sport or hobby, but a way to help children understand many life lessons they face growing up.  Patience, disappointment, teamwork, accomplishment, appreciation, companionship, and attitude are a few of the experiences everyone faces while fishing.

Fishing with children and their parents helps to build memories that the children will never forget as it bonds the child and parent to a new level.  Making it fun for the children is the key.  They become part of the crew when fishing with Captain George as they are assigned crew duties while at sea.  Helping them to understand conservation will be one of the most important lessons they learn while fishing with Captain George.

Captain George recommends that all fishermen join CCA Louisiana and all children join CCA's New Tide Program to help insure that your children and grandchildren will have the same or better fishing in the future.  Captain George is CCA Louisiana's Children's Captain and can be found on CCA's web page:
