The Crew of BILLFISHER is honored to be part of the Old Harbor Outfitters Pro Staff. Its not everyday that we find a product that will stand up to the abuse we put it through day in and day out on the water. Its even rarer to find a company that stands behind its product and its customers the way OHO does. We wear OHO because it is functional, comfortable, well built and looks good.

Captain Jon Duffie is a Maryland native who grew up fishing out of Ocean City, MD. As soon as he could walk, he began fishing offshore with his father on their family owned boat. When he was a teenager he began working as a mate with some of the most accomplished captains in the business. Throughout his twenties he ran various boats as well as the family owned boat, the BILLFISHER, and has become one of most competitive billfisherman on the east coast. He has fished up and down the entire east coast of the United States, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, and just about everywhere in between. He has navigated through the Panama Canal and has been crew on many yacht deliveries to foreign ports. The experience gained in these years of traveling have helped attribute to his tournament track record. He has won or placed in many tournaments over the years including being the top points boat and top captain in the White Marlin Open twice in his career. Tournament fishing is not his only passion, he also loves to share his vast knowledge of fishing and teach eager beginners. Whether you want to limit out on tunas or run to the Thousand in search of White marlin, kite fish for sails in Florida or troll for them in Mexico, the crew of BILLFISHER prides themselves on being the most professional and best prepared crew on the water.
