Captain James Ray Cuda Scheer

Captain James Ray Cuda Scheer is fast building a reputation as possibly the finest, most successful captain on the Gulf Coast. Having lived in Cocodrie his entire life, he started fishing at 3 years of age. By the time he was 7 he was fishing on his own from daylight to dark. Cuda became the youngest full time captain on the Gulf Coast at 18; from then on, the rest is history. Cuda does it all, including bay trips, marsh trips, and night trips. Cuda's real love is offshore, whether its tuna or snapper, Cuda knows where and how. If there is a better or more successful offshore captain, he is not on this planet.

Cuda now 35 has 23 years of guiding and 17 years as a full time licensed captain.
