About Capt. Terry...   I grew up fishing for Muskie and Northern Pike in Wisconsin where my parents owned a Hotel and cottages situated between two lakes.  When my wife, a life long resident of Tampa, introduced me to saltwater fishing  we became hooked on shallow water angling.  In order to be closer to Bonefish and Permit, we decided to move to Key Largo eight years ago.

I now spend over 150 hundred days on the water each year finding my way into some of the most exciting light tackle fishing in the area.  I have the specialized equipment and back country knowledge to put you on some big fish in some very shallow water.  I live at the southeastern entrance to the Everglades National Park in Key Largo, near the Marriott.

My boat is kept at the dock at my home, adjacent to the "Cut" so that we can be out-front or out-back in minutes.

 I practice CPR - that's "catch, photograph and release".
