Capt. Tommy Donlin, the BD Outdoors Pro Staff representative for the Pacific Northwest, has more than 20 years of experience fishing the waters from Sitka, Alaska, to Clarion Island off the coast of Mexico. He chases everything that swims off the Washington coast, including tuna, salmon, lingcod, halibut, crab and shrimp. Tommy spends countless hours on the water hunting and honing his fish-catching skills. He is a firm believer that the devil is in the details and strategy is everything.
“Prior to each trip, I run through the game plan in my head minute by minute, making sure that I haven’t missed anything,” he says. “Then I go out there and execute that plan.”
Tommy is also a pro staffer for Defiance Boats and gives many seminars throughout western Washington. He’s extremely active on the Washington Forum on www.bdoutdoors.com.
