"Being on the water and fishing started from day one with me," shares CCO Sportfishing owner Allan Palmerson. As a youngster, Palmerson would accompany his father, a fishing guide, on trips around Puget Sound in search of chinook, crab, and the world's largest swedish-fish gummy. After traveling throughout the United States and abroad with his fishing gear in tow, he turned his hobby into a career, earning his USCG captain’s license and charter permit in his home state and then founding CCO Sportfishing. Like his father before him, he helms small-group fishing expeditions in search of both the best catches and the most memorable experiences.
