Book your next trip with Fish-On Sport Fishing and come aboard for an experience your whole family will enjoy! Captain Terry Heller has been fishing and scuba diving in South Florida since 1999. He loves seeing how excited customers get when they reel in a catch, which is why he works hard to make it happen time and again. He’ll see to it that you catch some of Florida’s most popular species when they’re biting the most!

Make yourself comfortable aboard a 24’ Polar powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 44 knots, this vessel allows you to spend more time fishing and less time getting there. She’s fitted with the latest fishing technology, including GPS/fishfinder, a wireless trolling motor, and three live bait wells. Up to 4 passengers can come aboard.

While fishing with Capt. Terry you can catch a wide variety of species swimming inshore and nearshore. Depending on the time of year, you might reel in Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Pompano, and much more while fishing the shallow waters inshore. On the other hand, fishing nearshore allows you to target King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, and a variety of tasty bottom fish.

You can also join Capt. Terry for Tarpon fishing when the season allows. No fish puts on a show like this hard-fighting Silver King, revered by anglers the world over. Tarpon usually stick around South Florida from spring through early autumn, but their season changes year to year. Capt. Terry will have you on the water when they’re biting the most.

Fish-On Sport Fishing provides licenses and all the gear you need. You are welcome to keep your catch if regulations allow and Capt. Terry will clean and fillet it for you. He may be able to trailer his boat to nearby locations depending on your request.

Come aboard today for an experience that you and your family will remember for years to come!

Captain Terry Heller started fishing with his dad and has been fishing ever since, from Alaska down to Florida. Originally from the Chicagoland area, he started guiding charters in and around Port Charlotte, FL in 2005. He says "I found warm weather and great fishing here with lots of wildlife, so I stayed." What he loves most about guiding charters is seeing the look on a customer's face when they land an amazing catch.
