Bio: You might say Captain Art Gaetan is an 'old salt', having spent most of his life on the water. As a young boy, he fished extensively with his father, a lobster fisherman from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. At the tender age of seventeen, Art joined the Canadian Navy, retiring after twenty years of service. Art has fished fresh and salt water species all over the world and is quick to say: "Atlantic Canada offers some of the most exciting saltwater fishing in the world and is arguably the best kept secret for the serious global angler." Art is Department of Transportation certified, and qualified in Marine Safety and CPR. He is currently a field tester for Shimano Canada's Saltwater Equipment Division.

Introduction To Blue Shark Fishing Charters (3/24/2007)
[Eastern Passage,NS] Shark in Atlantic Canada, you ask? You betcha! Blue Shark, porbeagle, and even mako are caught every year in these parts. Although Blues are most common, the occasional porbeagle and mako enter our waters as the temperature becomes warmer, and I can attest to the fact that these shark are a handful! They range in size from a respectable 70 lbs, to 1000 lbs plus, and promise a fishing adventure like you've never had before!
