Herb Tennell

Capt. Herb Tennell


A self admitted fish “aholic”, Herb was born and raised in the town of Port Angeles on the west coast of Washington State. After high school graduation in 1989, his summers during college were spent on charter boats fishing for salmon in the straits of juan de fuca. In 1994, he ventured north for a summer job guiding out of Sitka and immediately fell in love with Alaska. As a result he has spent his last nine summer exploring the fishing waters in and around Sitka, Alaska.
