The Highliner Team PDF Print E-mail

Captain Brett Rosson is the owner and primary operator of Highliner Charters.  He serves as the guide for the majority of the fishing trips, and his passion for fishing verges on addiction. Growing up Brett spent many of his weekends on charter boats and dreamt of one day operating his own. He made his dream a reality back in 2007 and quickly set out to find like-minded friends who shared his desire to put smiles on faces while sharing their passion and knowledge.  The result is the "Highliner Team", which is one of the most highly talented, friendly, and enthusiastic groups of fishing guides in the Pacific Northwest.  

Captain Paul Parker and Brett met while serving at a near by Naval Air Station.  They quickly developed a friendship based on fishing, fish, and a love of boats.  Paul was born and raised here in the northwest, became obsessed with fishing at an early age, and thinks of little else to this day.  Lucky for us he works for a local school district which frees his summers up allowing him to pursue his true passion; killing fish!

Captain Jade Luckhurst is a veteran fishing guide and boat captain.   He was born in Alaska and moved to the San Juan islands as a teenager.  Having honed his skills here in the San Juans, Jade later returned to one of Alaska's premier resorts as a seasonal fishing guide.  Lucky for us, Jade is also a dedicated family man which means he now has to stay closer to home.   When he's not fishing or changing diapers, he can be found working on the Skagit river as a Fisheries Biologist.  The only one who will talk fishing longer than Jade is Austin.
