Captain Lee Johnson is a third generation captain, with nearly 30 years fishing experience out of Oregon Inlet Fishing Center. Captain Lee has been personally working his fishing business for more than a decade by referrals from his "too many to count" happy anglers. And, he might just be the only captain on the Outer Banks without a Facebook page or website (coming in 2016). Since, being a fisherman on the Outer Banks is in Captain Lee's DNA, it was no surprise that he began his career here mating for Captain Warren Gallop, at the young age of 19 and spent 16 years as an offshore mate. He earned his Captain's license at the age of 30 and skippered his first boat, Gouger not long afterward. Captain Lee currently holds a 6-Pack USCG Captain License.
Captain Lee also hails from a strong line of Outer Banks boat builders, learning the craft from the masters. The new "Lisa J" is a true work of heart for Captain Lee. Custom-built by Captain Lee and completed in the Fall of 2015, she is named in honor of his wife, Lisa.
