The 24-year-old Fuentes grew up in Fort Pierce, Florida, where he earned his first job fishing with Capt. Glenn Cameron, working as a tower spotter aboard Floridian in local sailfish tournaments. Through hard work and dedication, Fuentes was able to parlay that position into a full-time job on J-Hook under Capt. Michael Dewey Price. He has now been working aboard Shoe, a 62-foot Spencer captained by Devin Silas, for four seasons. With a new boat on the horizon, his future looks bright — and busy.
