The grandson of a fisherman, Ian has been sport fishing since he was a kid. He adopted the lifestyle as a career after high school and has been on the water ever since.
When he's not crabbing, he's fishing what he truly loves -- albacore (he even as a tattoo of the marine animal) -- in southern Oregon.
Ian met Scotty Hillstrand three years ago at a fishing festival in Oregon. The Time Bandit deck boss gave him a call once Billy left the boat after Kings. This season, Ian was called back once to replace a deckhand that was kicked off the boat.
Though not biologically related, Ian fathers his girlfriend's three kids and considers his girlfriend's sister's child a fourth. With six mouths to feed, he has little extra income to afford expensive toys.
