25+ Years Experience Fishing the Gulf of Mexico

Captain Ryan Reed

Captain Ryan Reed is a native Floridian growing up on the northern gulf coast of the panhandle.  He has fished the gulf for over 25 years. As a youth, Ryan fished the lakes, rivers, bays and gulf.  As a young adult, he joined the US Army.  Ryan served 8 years with duty stations in South Korea, and Ft. Campbell, Ky. From Ft. Campbell, Capt. Ryan deployed to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.  During these years, he trained as a military police officer and later served as a proud member of the 101st Airborne. Fishing was never far from his thoughts.  At home on leave, Ryan, often, took the friends and sons of his ‘away’ military buddies fishing for the big one.  After military service, Ryan earned his degree as a medical assistant serving cardiology and orthopedics.

Along the way, Ryan purchased his first boat for bay and gulf fishing for personal fishing pursuits.  He gained experience in navigating open waters and fishing endeavors. Today, Capt. Ryan is putting his vocational skills and experience as well as his boating and fishing experience into captaining for Badlands Charters.
