Capt. Brady Nelson was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Florida and has been fishing his entire life. At 17, he started fishing bass tournaments and continued to fish competitively for 17 years. In 2005, he started fishing redfish tournaments and won his first event and starting in 2006 led the entire West Coast of Florida in points in the professional IFA redfish tour for three consecutive years.
Nelson has been a licensed charter captain since 2000 and continues to run trips from Tampa Bay to Lake Okeechobee.
He came up with the idea of a mounted dehooker while commercial fishing with his son Capt. Kasey Nelson as an easy way to eliminate unwanted species over the side of the boat and speed up the process of removing the fish in order to keep the bite going and catch more in less time. After years of work designing and manufacturing, he built the dehooker, which not only looks great and will withstand the tough salt water conditions, but will also help make days on the water more enjoyable.
