San Diego, CAUnited States
A native San Diegan, Donald Krebs has been fishing for 34 years. He started fishing tuna and swordfish on a lark in 1976 by joining a friend who had a harpoon boat. Together they hit San Diego's 9 Mile Bank. Captain Donald got to be so good that he ended up buying his own boat in 1980 and the rest, as they say, is history. He fished with the same friend up until that friend passed away. Today he works with just one other crew member, fishing for white seabass, yellowtail, opah, tuna, swordfish and mako and thresher sharks.
