Captain John Falterman Jr. grew up in South Louisiana fishing bream and bass with his father Johnny using fly rods at the young age of four. By the time he was five, he was on his way to mastering the fly rod. Capt. Falterman’s family has had camps in Grand Isle and on Lake Pontchartrain for most of his life. Growing up, Capt. John and his cousin, Brad, would fish Lake Pontchartrain from dawn to dusk. Capt. John’s love for fishing grew even greater when he married his wife and fellow fisherman, Kelle. Together they have spent thousands of hours over the past twelve years fishing the waters of Grand Isle out of her family’s camp. Out on the water, they aim for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. There’s nothing like the fight of the large Redfish from the Biloxi Marsh area. Capt. John’s knowledge of these waters is the reason his clients make memories with their children, family members, and friends.

THERAPY CHARTERS was formed in early 2008, and has had many happy clients since its conception. Fishing out of his spacious NEW 2011 Skeeter ZX24V with a V6 four stroke 300 Yamaha, helps make short time of the open waters of Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Borgne, large bays, and the Gulf of Mexico out of Grand Isle.
