Growing up in Southern California Shea was either surfing or fishing. Shea’s dad Patrick handed him a cane poll before the bottle. Next in line was the 2-day saltwater trips that introduced Shea and his brother Ryan to the offshore scene. From a kid through his teenage years Shea had a passion for the sport of fishing and had to be in or around the water at all times.
At the age of 18 Shea purchased his first video camera and traveled to Costa Rica on a surf trip with his friend Sam and his dad Robert August from the classic film “Endless Summer”. After fun filming the trip and re-living the memories with friends at home Shea was fascinated with video. A year later at the age of 19 Shea learned how to edit, which quickly turned into a passion along filming.
2 decades later and thousands of hours of editing experience Shea had worked very hard and finally chased down his passionate dream. In 2005 Shea McIntee Productions was born, a professional production company that specializes in producing outdoor adventures.
From 2008 – 2012 Shea teamed up with a legend in the fishing industry Executive Producer Michael Fowlkes if Inside Sportfishing TV. Shea traveled around the globe filming, editing, and producing over 45 episodes for Inside Sportfishing TV.
From 2012 – 2013 Shea has taken his experience and talents and has been traveling the world producing fishing show for his own show called Stoked On Fishing.

First off, I’m much cooler than my brother. With that out of the way I do want to tell you why I love fishing. When my brother and I were just little kids our dad was a hardcore fisherman. As far back as I can remember he was always getting ready for a trip, working in the garage on his reels, or sitting in the backyard reading the western with his favorite beverage in hand. Lucky for us he was always eager to teach us something new about the passion he loved. 35 years later I’m stoked more than ever on fishing and continue to learn something new each time out on the water. It’s the simple enjoyment that I get when I go fishing. It makes me smile. From the preparation I enjoy of planning when and where I’m going fishing to just being out on the water. Fresh or salt it doesn’t matter. Hey, when you catch em it’s great but when you don’t, remember your still blessed enough just to be able to go fishing! Were all in this same club together so lets respect one another and please do our parts in taking care of our mother ocean, rivers, lakes and streams.

I am pretty lucky to have been raised in a boating family. Dad took us on some really cool adventures that fueled my passion for the outdoors. Some of my earliest fishing memories were with my brother and sister fishing off Dad’s boat. Over the years we took some awesome trips that ranged from San Diego to the Channel Islands. I met Shea back in high school. We came from different backgrounds but both loved fishing. Fishing trips were basic back then, they were all about the adventure. Fast forward to my post college days when I purchased my first Boat. This really sharpened my fishing skills and opened up my eyes to the incredible fishing opportunities we have in California. My favorite was fishing for largemouth bass but I never limited myself to any specific type of fishing. Ocean trips were complimented with annual trips to the Sierras. I can remember back in the day while watching some of our favorite fishing shows Shea would say, “One day I will have my own fishing show”.
20 years later it’s pretty cool to see the dream come true. Working with Stoked On Fishing as a camera man and photographer has introduced me to some great people and taken me to some really cool places. It puts a smile on my face to see people in their element doing what they love. The opportunity to capture the moment with a good photo or a video clip is something special. One thing I love most about fishing is how it brings people together that can be from completely different walks of life. You can ask 10 different people what they love about fishing and get 10 different answers. One common thread and that brings us all together…. the STOKE for the sport. See u on the water… JT
