Capt. Bryan Lewer

Capt. Bryan Lewer wasn’t actually born holding a fishing rod, but he has had a rod virtually glued to his hand most of his life!

Bryan has been mentored by some of the finest captains in Maine and has acquired extensive inshore and deep-sea fishing experience. His passion for fishing is contagious, making a charter on the Salty Lewer truly unforgettable.
