sf-girls-quinlyn.jpg

Species: Cobia

Canadian-born Quinlyn only fell in love with fishing in the past couple months, but this cobia sure couldn't tell. Quin made the move from Canada and quickly found a job working as a first mate for a sportfishing charter out of Sarasota, Florida.

"I went after a firstmate job and I had never been on a boat before. Forty miles out on a 10-hour trip for my first day and I killed it! I was hired because of my dedication and hard work — being a female had nothing to do with it. I do not serve cocktails. I haul anchor and get my hands dirty and bloodied on the daily."
