Captain Seth Megargle, with a U.S.C.G. 100 ton Master’s License, has fished the local waters of CT, RI and NY for over 22 years. From the young age of five without prompt or guidance, Seth found his passion for fishing. If Seth was missing at home, he could be found at the nearest river, lake or beach with rod in hand! At the age of seventeen, he naturally found himself working on some of the area fishing boats. After serving in the Marine Corps for four years, Seth returned to work as a mate on head boats and six packs while finishing his college degree in Marine Science. Seth acquired his Captain’s license shortly before graduating from UCONN Avery Point in 2010.  He has been running various fishing vessels and working the deck ever since. Now, father of a two year old son and brand-new daughter, Seth hopes that his love for the ocean and passion for fishing is passed down to the next generation. Seth has always been about hard work and family values and looks forward to taking those values with him on this new adventure aboard the Otter.
