Background
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.
Techniques
The Weather controls where we fish and what's in season controls what we can fish for.

We had a good day of fishing with Captain Terry. We caught many fish varying in size and species. Most of the fish were grunts with several lane snapper to help fill our cooler. We also caught several small sharks which added to the excitement.

On the negative side, Terry lives just south of Tamami Trail in Port Charlotte. He trailered his boat to Placida to launch it there which cost us a little extra fishing time. One the plus side, he accommodated my request that he meet us closer to our home.

All in all, it was a pleasure fishing with Terry and likely will in the future.

Captain Terry should change his name to Captain Hustle! He worked nonstop to get us on fish and lines in the water. We couldn’t ask for a friendlier or harder working man. A 100% awesome experience. Highly recommended.

Matt had a great time with you and your wife.  Sorry you had to leave in two day or we could have kept more fish.  How was that fish fry?  Thanks again we hope to see you soon.  Fish-On Sport Fishing.

Great time with Terry. We caught a lot of fish when nobody else did. When we came back to port we heard that the other boats were having a tough time even with a full moon.  Captain Terry came through for us! Thanks for a great time and lasting memories with my sons!

Had a great time but the fish weren’t cooperative. Water was warm and waves were to high to get out to the golf

Captain Terry is very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend using his guide service. He worked very hard to catch fish. I took my 7 year old daughter who had a great time catching fish. Thanks so much! Michael Osteen

The boat was excellent. Captain Terry supplied us with top-of-the-line equipment and kept busy all day taking care of us we had a great time and would recommend it to others.

We arrived at Captain Terry’s boat and immediately started out.  Within 30 minutes, my 10 year old grandson had the first fish on the line.
Captain Terry took us to many different locations in our quest for fish.  All along the way we were baiting hooks, casting the line and netting the fish.
Captain Terry never got upset when we would make a mistake and would work quickly to correct it.
We plan to use Captain Terry again.
Thank you Captain

Great fishing with Captain Terry. Highly recommend a day trip - caught about 40 fish between two people and Terry knew where the fish were biting. When biting slowed, off to another good spot. Knows the waters well and takes you to his favorite spots, not the tourist reefs. He provides everything you need for an excellent day on the Gulf.

My 13 year old son and I had a very pleasant fishing experience with Capt. Terry.  He always made sure our lines were ready to go, and that we were using the correct bait and fishing depth for whatever fish we were after. He tried several different fishing spots to make sure we would catch them in good numbers.  In addition to several nice trout, my son caught his largest fish ever, a 28 pound AmberJack!
