Meet Your Captain
Captain Ken Brodeur
Capt. Ken grew up in Milford, CT, fishing the waters of western Long Island Sound with his father in a 19’ Mako. As a teen, Capt. Ken spent his summers working as a mate in City Island, NY and winters in Pompano Beach, FL. In 1982 he earned his U.S.C.G. 6-pack license and in 1984 he upgraded to a 100 ton master license, which he currently holds. Capt. Ken then moved east to Mystic and began running charter boats out of Noank. From the early 1980’s Capt. Ken fished with some of the best captains in the business – learning from them everything he could.
Capt. Ken’s fishing obsession isn’t confined to salt water. After competing in local bass fishing club tournaments he found success on the Bassmaster tournament trail, where he won the 2003 Bassmaster Open Championship on Toledo Bend in Louisiana. With that win Capt. Ken launched his professional bass fishing career and qualified to fish the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament trail, featuring the top 100 anglers in the country.
Combining his salt and freshwater fishing knowledge, Capt. Ken invented Striper Snax, the popular and deadly jig. Since 2010, Striper Snax are found in tackle shops, on charter boats and in tackle bags across the country.
