Tribute to Captain John Larson
No matter where you roam in the seaside fishing village of Barnegat Light, Capt. John Larson's footprints and legacy have left a lasting impact. A sea captain in the finest sense who braved an untamed ocean and the wild inlet, he was known in the '70s as the 'tilefish' tycoon along with Capt. Lou Puskas. The two successfully made Viking Village, the commercial seafood production dock, a destination for fishermen and tourists alike.
