About Captain Ozzie
Ozzie Lessinger learned to fish before he could walk. His father, an avid fisherman, put 6-month-old Ozzie in a backpack carrier and placed a fishing pole in his hand and taught him to fish.

Ozzie was hooked, so to speak. After finishing college with a degree in marketing and trying his hand in the corporate world, Ozzie traded his suit and tie in for a fishing pole and some flip flops.
