Captain Calvin F Duvalle grew up fishing shrimping, crabbing, and hunting in Southeast Louisiana with his father Big Cal. Big Cal has a love for the outdoors that he passed on to Calvin. Calvin took that love for the outdoors and compounded it. His younger years were spent going to school, playing sports, and spending the rest of this time in the woods or on the water. If you bring him in to the city he cannot find is way around, but put him in the woods or on the water and he is never lost. His loving wife, Kim is not able to understand how that is and thankfully she knows her way in the city.
Growing up Capt. Calvin’s family had camps in Empire, Port Sulphur, Lafitte, and Lake Pontchatrain. He was 12 when he had his first boat. It was a 12 foot flat bottom with a 9.9 Evenrude on it. He would take out by himself and caught hundreds if not thousands of fish in it. Captain Calvin’s love for fishing grew the more he learned how different techniques improve your odds of catching fish. His passion is shallow water fishing redfish, but he can be just as happy sitting on a canal bank with a cane pole catching bream. Fishing to him is not a passion, it’s an obsession. He wants to pass this passion on to future generations.
