A Passion for Fishing
Jordan Carter is a native South Floridian and became obsessed with fishing at an early age. Born and raised in Ft Lauderdale he started tarpon and snook fishing with his father long before he was old enough.
Jordan’s father constantly took him west to the Everglades Nation Park, where they would head south from Chokoloskee Island.
It was many years later in the same dark waters of the Everglades where he poled a friend into a fly hooked tarpon for the first time, the decision was made then and there to become a flats fishing guide.
While attending college it was apparent to him that guiding in Alaska could be a great summer job and also provide the experience necessary to become a professional guide. It was after his first year at Purdue University that he traveled north for the Alaskan summer season in 2007 and he has continued that seasonal migration ever since.
The Outgoing Angling Story
Before migrating back south to the Florida keys Jordan would live in the midwest where he received a Fisheries Biology degree from Purdue University. The midwest was a great place to be immersed in fly fishing. The great lakes region has some incredible trout, salmon, and steelhead fishing to offer.
It was here within the tributaries of Lake Michigan where Captain Jordan’s attention was shifted from fishing to fly fishing.
It was the love for these freshwater fish that brought him to Alaska for the first time and solidified his love for guiding.
