Your Captains

Black Hawk Party Fishing Boat - Captain Greg Dubrule, Connecticut Seal WatchingCaptain Greg Dubrule knew he was going to make a career on the water at a very early age. He’s gone from fishing a handful of crab pots and selling green crabs for a penny a piece, to tub trawling for codfish in the wintertime out of a small lobster boat, to a canyon and giant tuna fishing, where fish are sold for thousands. Having a ton of fishing experience, coupled with a colorful and outgoing style, has made Greg a sought-after seminar feature at sport- and boat- shows throughout the entire country. Whether at a sports show or at any one of the many freshwater promotions he does, introducing new families, especially children, to the fishing opportunities Connecticut has to offer has always been a high priority for Greg. As owner and captain of the Black Hawk, he has raised the standards in the charter and party boat arena. Greg is always on the cutting edge in the latest of marine electronics and fishing tackle and is committed to providing a clean and comfortable boat.  It’s no wonder the Black Hawk is one of New England’s most popular party boats!  He invites you to come and see for yourself.

Black Hawk Charter Fishing Boat - Captain Matt Chamberlain, Connecticut Cod FishingCaptain Matt Chamberlin was born and raised in Niantic, Connecticut. Like all local kids, he had a love of the ocean and all types of fishing. He had an indisputable knack for it, and it soon would turn into a career. Matt ran many private boats and worked on many charter boats and, after graduating from the University of Connecticut, he found his home with the Black Hawk. He worked as a full-time deckhand and assisted in all of the Black Hawk’s wintertime promotions at the boat- and sport- shows throughout New England. After getting his Captain’s license in 2012, he graduated to the wheelhouse.  Captain Matt has proved to be an excellent boatman, is highly respected by his crew and customers, and has the necessary, burning desire to catch fish and keep customers coming back. We’re all extremely proud of Matt and his accomplishments.  He is a huge asset to the Black Hawk fishing family.
