As CEO and founder of Bristol Crown Fisheries, Cole has spent over a decade fishing in Bristol Bay for wild salmon. His love for Alaska started in his teenage years commercial fishing off the shores of Ekuk set-netting on the beach with his family and couldn’t wait for the opportunity to fish with his cousins on the FV Big Dipper. At age 20 he joined the Big Dipper and never looked back, going up every season since. Fast forward to now, after having worked in the Action Sports industry for several years, Cole knew he needed to make a choice between his two passions. Ultimately he decided everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the salmon his family has caught for decades by offering wild Alaskan filets delivered year round. And in 2021, Bristol Crown Fisheries was founded. And when Cole isn't fishing, he likes spend his free time camping, surfing, and riding mountain bikes around Southern California. 



Born and raised in Alaska, Scott has taken part in harvesting from the phenomenal summer salmon runs since he was a small child. Finally starting out commercially on a set-net operation in Ugashik in 2015. That first season fishing was spent in between Wildland firefighting assignments both in Alaska and the continental US. It was a .50/lb year and he made very little money. But the experience was all it took for him to keep coming back to the bay for more. Once he got onto a drift boat, he really found his groove. Working as a deckhand and engineer on both the Bonzai and the Big Dipper over the years, he is now a vital part of the Bristol Crown family. When he isn't fishing the bay, you might find him out trolling for Ono in Hawaii with his family and friends.
