Captain Britton “Shack” Shackelford comes from a long line of fishermen. His family has been in the commercial fishing business since 1670, so it’s common belief among the locals that Shackelford has salt water running through his veins. Born and raised in Gloucester, Virginia, he is a proud Southerner who puts faith and family first — values that have made him one of the most dedicated fishermen in the Outer Banks. When he’s not fishing for bluefin, Shackelford runs a charter business out of Wanchese, North Carolina, where he takes pride in helping others connect with their love of fishing. An avid outdoorsman, Shackelford also operates a duck-hunting charter business.
