Captain Gary Blasi has been the owner/operator of Full Throttle Sportfishing in Eureka, Ca., since 2004 and an avid fisherman since he could remember. He also has experience chasing down the monster kings and halibut in Alaska. Blasi holds a United States Coast Guard 25-ton masters license and specializes in king salmon, Pacific halibut, rockfish and albacore.

Blasi takes pride in fishing out of Eureka and believes he lives in the best fishing community out of any port in the world. Blasi and his wife, Trudie, also own Mad River Bait Tackle and Guide Service in Arcata, the only strictly fishing tackle shop on the North Coast. They also make their own custom, hand poured swimbaits and saltwater grubs. The shop is located directly on the Mad river which is loaded with winter steelhead.

Blasi’s experience and professionalism has earned him coverage in ESPN Outdoors, Sacramento Bee, San Francisco Chronicle, California Sportsman Magazine, Fish Sniffer and Western Outdoor News. He’s also been heard on Sep Hendrickson’s California Sportsman radio.
