Captain Tim Linnell has been fishing the shores and ocean around Cape Cod for over 27 years. He began fishing in high school in order to save money for college. After returning to fishing full-time, he purchased F/V Perry's Pride II in 2000 and fishes primarily for skates, monkfish and dogfish.
The Linnell family has been a member of the Fishermen’s Alliance family for many years. When Tim’s oldest son, Samuel, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer, the Fishermen’s Alliance came to the family’s side and fundraised to offset the devastating financial expenses. Thankfully, today, Samuel is in remission and fishes with his father during the summer months.
