Captain and Mate Edward Lee Mann is a native of Roanoke Island. He grew up on these waters hunting and fishing every day. After high school graduation, he joined the Coast Guard where he served for 25 years. He earned his sea legs and rank as Lieutenant. After retirement, he returned home to start back hunting and fishing every day. He began working on the Miss Oregon Inlet to watch people of all ages catch fish and have a great time.
