Background
Captain John “JT” Tenore was born and raised in North Carolina. JT was first introduced to fishing by his father and was fishing along the coastline at a very early age. In the 1980’s, JT moved to Destin and started fishing the local piers. And the rest is history!
Techniques
Offshore, back bay, inshore gulf fishing; anything swimming around Destin is fair game.
