Captain
Skipper Gentry

Member since January 2016 Nassau, Bahamas
Background
Capt. Skipper Gentry grew up fishing the waters of North Carolina participating and winning famed tournaments such as the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, Hatteras Marlin Club, etc. He fished as a child with his father in those same tournaments from the age of 3! It was only natural for him to be a sportfisherman. Fishing all over the East Coast, Caribbean, Bahamas etc. Skipper found that South Florida was a great location to base his operation where the Bahamas is close and the year round fishing Florida has to offer is hard to beat.
Techniques
While fishing on the Carolina Gentleman you will find yourself using whatever technique is best. In the winter in Florida most days are spent using live goggle eyes fished from kites targeting sailfish. In other months when live baiting is not the best tactic, using teasers and ballyhoo is the preferred method for targeting a variety of species. We usually will have live bait on board as many times we find ourselves able to pitch live baits under debris found floating in the gulf stream. We are out there to catch fish, not just make laps to burn time and save money and not catch fish. That is why Sport Fishing Magazine named Skipper Gentry one of the nations top Charter Captains in 2015!
