AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. - Professional golfer turned pro fisherman Terry Lacoss talks about his transition from humble beginnings as a instructor at Amelia Island Plantation in 1973 to taking over the fishing program. Lacoss offers sailing, deep sea fishing, back-water fishing and, most importantly, sight-seeing for tourists.

Now Lacoss owns Amelia Angler, a fishing and gift shop. Not only does he loves what he does, Lacoss loves the people he gets to work with -- the locals and the tourists.

Lacoss says the Amelia Island area has some of the best fishing waters in Florida.

So whether you're an avid fisher, need lessons, or just want to do some sight seeing -- Capt. Terry Lacoss and Amelia Angler offer all sorts of fishy fun.
