In the middle of a red tide, our captain put us on fish. We didn’t see anyone else coming in with fish, but we had good action from the moment we put our lines in the water. Captain was fun, and even took us to watch dolphins teach the babies to fish. Seen more dolphins and were closer than we were on any dolphin seeing your we ever did. Highly recommend him for serious fishermen or family fun.

Half Day Trip (AM)
What a great experience all the way from the ride to the catch. Nothing was spared and it was a great day. Started off targeting Macs, snapper and cobies and finished off the day with snook and red fish. Definitely a expert of the water way and all other aspects of the fish. Had plenty of sea stories and really went the extra mile for my dad who’s a great fisherman but getting up there in age. I couldn’t be happier, I got memories I’ll cherish for ever thanks Capt. Brian, see yah again soon.

Yesterday’s fishing trip with Captain Brian stands at the top of the list. I vacation in Florida every year for the past 25 years and book a charter every year. This by far was the best trip yet. Caught eight different species of fish, that’s what we could land no telling what we lost. Captain Brian is very knowledgeable and accommodating, he knows where and when to go to get the fish on line action. My wife and I had a great time and will book again next year.
