Captain Jodie was a Commercial fisherman for 20 years. He used Hook and Line Fishing in the Ocean and trolling for Tuna, Dolphin, Wahoo, and Mackeral. He also bottom fished for Snapper and Grouper.
When he left commercial fishing in 2002, he started Blue Water Candy Lures, a family owned and operated business. It started at the Kitchen table and moved into the garage. Jodie and his son in law, Russell, gave us a tour of their current manufacturing and shipping facility and shared their expansion plans with us.
Terry and I shared stories about the challenges and joys of being married and building a small business. She also shared her recipes for cooking some of Captain Jody's favorite fish.
