Full Day
Celebrate my boy’s birthday. The weather was a little rough captain Matt was trying to get us to change days but we couldn’t work out A-day because of my busy schedule and so he said he would still take us out just let us know it’s gonna be a little rough and not the ideal fishing! We ended up having a great day of fishing and we caught many species and we were also able to take some fish home and cook a birthday dinner thank you Captain Matt!

Captain Matt was awesome, we had an outstanding time. From the first spot to the last all the fish was biting, even shared a great taco fish recipe for our catch. Overall satisfied and definitely will request his services again.

Shark Fishing
He made Dreams come true My wife checked a bucket list item off with catching a shark with capt Matt’s experience and knowledge he allowed her to make it happen. It was a spectacular day fishing for snapper, snook, redfish, then when the tide was right after a fun day already the crescendo happened and and hour and some change later my wife reels up to the boat a 7 foot bull shark. Amazing is an understatement in regards to Capt Matt Fun friendly easy going best fishing experience ever and we fish weekly. We cannot say enough good things about fishing with Capt Matt Five stars is a slap in the face for Capt Matt. 1 million stars is not enough but barely sufficent. Awesome day, awesome capt, awesome fishing. We cannot wait to do it again.
