About the Captain

Skipper Gentry
Nassau, Bahamas
Member since January 2016
Capt. Skipper Gentry grew up fishing the waters of North Carolina participating and winning famed tournaments such as the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, Hatteras Marlin Club, etc. He fished as a child with his father in those same tournaments from the age of 3! It was only natural for him to be a sportfisherman. Fishing all over the East Coast, Caribbean, Bahamas etc. Skipper found that South Florida was a great location to base his operation where the Bahamas is close and the year round fishing Florida has to offer is hard to beat.
