About Your Guide

Capt John Tenore (“JT”) was born and raised in North Carolina fishing the coast with his father. At an early age, he was fascinated with all aspects of fishing. In 1980, Capt JT moved to the Destin/Fort Walton area. After fishing on the local piers he knew the passion of fishing was in his blood. Shortly thereafter, he purchased his first boat and began fishing the area local waters and tournaments. Later he tried other aspects of fishing: commercial fishing, back bay fishing, and offshore fishing. Trying them all, he knew his heart was with the back bay and inshore gulf fishing. His expertise in the area waters will insure your party a great fishing adventure.
