Growing up in Southern California is a privilege for those who call it home because the locals are exposed to so many opportunities that most of the country never even knew existed. Capt. Evan Salvay took advantage of having the Pacific Ocean in his backyard and has spent the last decade honing his skills and exploring every nook and cranny of the SoCAL coastline and outer islands, while turning his passion into a career.
Evan made his name in the sportfishing scene by producing a series of informative Youtube videos that caught the attention of sponsors and viewers around the country. Evan has spent countless days on the water mastering his skills and learning how to target everything from trophy Calico bass to Blue marlin.
Working on local sportboats in his early years, before transitioning to six pack and private yacht operations, he’s brought strong technical knowledge to his current operation, Salvay Pacific. When he isn’t running his 29 ft. Crystaliner in search of notable Southern California targets, he runs several boats and crews for tournament billfish teams. There is simply no one his age in Socal with the raw hours behind the wheel of a vessel, and it shows.
