Capt. John Little graduated from East Central High School in San Antonio and decided to hit the water the quickest way he knew how, at 17 years old he joined the United States Coast Guard. After Boot Camp he was stationed on the Coast Guard Cutter Mallet in Corpus Christi, Tx. where he learned the waters very well, while working every aid to navigation from Brownsville, Tx all the way up to the Houston Ship Channel.
After replacing buoys, lights and day beacons for a couple of years, he moved over to the Law Enforcement side of the Coast Guard and learned the waters surrounding Coast Guard Station Port Aransas and Coast Guard Station Marathon, way down in the Florida Keys.
While in the Keys, he was sent to Coxswain "C" school in Yorktown, VA where he was trained to operate the Coast Guards 42' Utility Boat, learned Search and Rescue, Navigation and much more. Seeing his career in the Coast Guard expanding more and more, he unfortunately began to see less and less of his family.
Being married and having his first daughter at home, he decided a change in professions would allow him to be at home with the family more often. After an Honorable Discharge from the U.S. Coast Guard, he was hired onto the Corpus Christi Police Department which brought him closer to family, and his home waters of Corpus Christi. The change of professions definitely brought him closer to his wife, as the second daughter was born shortly there after.
Captain John continued to fish on every day he got off and even squeezed in a quick sunrise wade on mornings after a long graveyard shift, his passion for the water was undeniable. So much so, in 2008 he decided to chase his passion and obtained his United States Coast Guard Merchant Mariners License so he could share his passion for the outdoors with clients.
Over the years, he built his client base up and decided to make fishing/guiding his full time job. He retired from the Corpus Christi Police Department and continues to enjoy everyone's best day ever on the water vs. seeing everyone's worst day ever in his previous career.
His strong passion for the water has created a way of life for him that he only dreamed of as a child. If you have ever fished with him, you've already made some amazing memories that will last forever, if you haven't, what are you waiting for?
