How to become a career fisherman?
Ok, so I plan on moving to California and for a job i would like to be a captain on my own fishing vessel. But i was wondering, how big does the boat need to be for commercial fishing, what requirements do i have to meet to be a certified captain, how much would the boat and gear cost total, and where are some good places to live? I am basically moving out with very little money. So do i need a giant commercial boat at first, or can i make my way to that point with a relatively small vessel?

You don't just hop on a boat and call yourself "Captain".. you will need a USCG Captain's license FIRST and, since you have NO EXPERIENCE you will have a very hard time finding a crew that is willing to work for you on shares when you don't know sh*t about fishing
