Brent James

Brent is one of the younger captains tearing it up on the Great Barrier Reef and other hotspots along Australia’s east coast. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Brent as a crew over the last few years and loved every second of it. His boat driving, mechanical skills and top level customer service make him one of the best operators around and I have no doubt we will be seeing big things from him in the years ahead.

Home Port: Gold Coast, Australia

Ride: Mauna Kea – 44ft Assegai/Pleysier

Favorite TANTRUM Lure: Large Bandit

Most memorable TANTRUM experience: There’s so many, but catching a marlin grand slam for my 11 year old son all on TANTRUM Lures would have to be the most memorable of all! Other notable mentions would be watching a giant black marlin following and then eating a Large BULLET in glass out conditions with a huge bow wave coming off its shoulders.
