Capt. Brooks Rans

Captain Brooks Rans was born in Bermuda and has been fishing around the island since he was a little boy.  He has been fishing in Bermuda professionally for 25 years.  While working on sport fishing boats, Brooks’ travels have taken him to many of the world’s hot spots including Australia, Costa Rica, Venezuela, the Bahamas, and US east coast.  Having fished with many great captains over the years, he was able to take the different techniques he learned and adapt them to fishing in Bermuda.

Some of the Mattanza’s more memorable days offshore are:

  • Winner of the 2012 Bermuda Billfish Blast
  • One of only two billfish Grand Slams caught in Bermuda, winner of the 2011 Bermuda Big Game Classic Day 2 Billfish Release Jackpot, having caught 2 Blues, 1 White, and 1 Spearfish
  • Winner of the 2010 Calcutta Wahoo Tournament held in Morehead City, NC
  • August 2009 – 195lb Yellowfin tuna

Brooks and his expert crew are well acquainted with coaching novice anglers to big catches, yet can also provide advice to even the most seasoned angler.  They work tirelessly throughout the day to make sure that your day on the water is a FUN, unforgettable experience.
