Captain Gus is the owner and the operator of Fishing With Gus Charters. The Captain has been fishing since an early age, sailing the waters with his father and brothers. Gus has participated in various Bass tournaments, which contributed to his deep knowledge of the species. When he retired from his job after 20 successful years of business, Captain Gus put everything he earned into fishing. And this turned out to be an excellent idea! He enjoys taking his guests out and watching them catching their first fish. Gus has a 14-year old client, who has been fishing with him for 12 years… what is more to say?
