Captain Coral Rose Aiello has been fishing with her father, Joe since she was a child and became first mate on his charter boat the Coral Rose at 14. In the decade+ since then, she has come into her own as a fisherman, and she and Joe have developed a very unique working relationship as a father-daughter team.
Coral, aka “Professional Hooker” can be found and followed on Instagram @Professional.Hooker. Check out her YouTube channel where she often posts fishing videos.
She holds her USCG 100-Ton Masters License. She is majoring in aquaculture & fisheries at the University of Rhode Island. As an avid conservationist, she is involved with Gray’s Fish tagging out of Florida and The American Littoral Society out of New Jersey.
