Background
Captain Terry is the owner and a captain aboard Reel Fun Charters. He's been steering boats around the Gulf, and knows waters all the way from Louisiana to the Bahamas. Captain Terry has over two decades of experience, and delivers professional service to his customers. He has also taken part in deep sea tournaments with success, and is often asked to step behind the wheel of private boats. He uses quality fishing gear, and knows the spots where fish are biting.
Techniques
I like live bait and lite tackle. Lots more fun for the anglers.
