Captain Geo…….
Captain George P. Ballard grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi where his Love for Fishing began by catching the Fish that inhabited the creeks, farm ponds, and big reservoirs of the area. After graduating from The University Of Southern Mississippi in 1972 with a B.S. in Marine Biology, Geo moved to Pensacola, Fl. Where he bought a 17 Foot boat and began to learn about the habits of the multiple species of Saltwater Fish that thrive in local Bay and Gulf waters and The methods used to catch them.

In 1978 Geo began fishing for Blue Water pelagic big game fish (Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Dolphin or “Mahi-Mahi”, And Tuna) on the original “Offshore Animal”, a 24 Foot Aquasport , with Lynn B. Paul, who would soon become the “Top Angler Of The Year” of the Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club.

In 1979 CaptGeo began his professional career as the Mate on the Legendary “Ms. Mindy” out of Ono Island, Alabama, teaming up with owner Jeff Friedman who caught his first Blue Marlin on Geo’s First Day As Mate on the Boat! Geo and Lynn became known as “The Blues Brothers” after winning several Tournaments in the 80’s and setting the Alabama State record Blue Marlin in 1981 at 578-1/4 Lbs.That fish and another that tipped the scales at 601-1/2 Lbs.
