    I don't know him or claim to know anything about him, but this is what I have learned about him on here in short.

    He's a failed charter guy that got into fitness. He then posted some pretty cool stuff on here catching big bluefin close to home. For awhile, he was like the only one catching.

    He developed a reputation and started a very successful charter business for a second time.

    Read some of his old posts. It's a nice story.

    He gets flamed on here for what he charges for his charters I suppose, but it's all about demand IMO. More power to him.

    There may be more coming.... :D

    was a hero around here back when he had a tricked out Parker until he started a website and sold his "spots." Like when a sports bettor goes "tout" and starts selling picks, no longer one of the regular guys. The fleet hates him because he's rich and didn't pay his dues. Guy catches tuna though, no doubt about that. 99% of the hate is jealousy I would think. Having a habit of selling whatever the hot bait of the year is at a 3-5x premium doesn't help things....

    He provide a “service “ for those whom have deep pockets and little time …

    Yes he gets hated on a lot , but those who hate on him have never met him in person ..

    Keith Poe, Sinjin Kim, Dave Hansen, Billy K, they all catch lots of fish.

    I know I'm forgetting a few more.

    At least he was nice enough to buy a black boat so everyone who can’t catch fish can find him and fish next to him, which I have been guilty of more than once. Other than that, hard to talk shit on someone just cause he outfishes just about everyone on here and cashed in while of us just sat around and jerked off to reports.

    B.K…Bluefin King,

    His service is not for the average fishermen🤔

    He can hook you up on a Cow Tuna in a just a Day fishing trip…hence an option for those who have unlimited $$$ to burn.

    His legendary rise to stardom is a great inspiration for small would be charters hunting tuna on SoCal. Especially that BK is fully book most of the time.

    Recently, BK is linked to Madmacs frenzy…😉
