Captain
Herman Carter

Member since March 2017 Placida, United States
Background
I was raised in a family of hunters and fishermen. I fished in Miami and Central Florida as a little kid and spent my teen years hunting and fishing in Alaska. I love to fish the flats and offshore waters and enjoy bottom fishing, flats fishing, and going after pelagic giants. I just love to fish! I have a "never give up" attitude. I have fished tournaments for 28 years. I fish because it's in my blood.
Techniques
I prefer to fish live or cut bait inshore. I use jigs off shore for bottom fishing. My day starts out by catching bait for the day which is mainly green backs or white bait. I also use cut bait at times, or dead green backs. I will present these baits on a sinker, free lined or under a cork. I also use large live bait for grouper, cobia and sharks. I also move from spot to spot until I find the fish. I fish the tides and moon phase. Check out my you tube channel. Search "darel c" and watch my fishing videos.
