Once crowned the “Prince of Shrimpers” by author Christopher Hallowell in his novel Holding Back the Sea, Capt. George is the only man you’d want with you out on these waters because he has dedicated his life to them. He has garnered over 45 years of experience fishing the coastal waters of Louisiana and Mississippi and 20 years of volunteer advocacy work protecting the coastal commercial fishing communities. His decades’ worth of successful adventures and survival stories, when shared in his characteristic style, unequivocally showcase this unique way of life that may not be around for much longer.
Capt. George’s advocacy, coupled with his impeccable reputation as both an accomplished fisherman and a steward of the industry, has earned him feature spots on multiple local and national media outlets. He has appeared as a spokesperson for the local commercial fishing industry in the premiere episode of the History Channel’s You Don’t Know Dixie, the Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, the Weather Channel’s Storm Stories, MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the Come Hell or High Water documentary, and the award-winning Dirty Energy documentary. Additionally, he has been interviewed in USA Today, The New York Times, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the New Orleans Gambit Weekly, and New Orleans City Business.
