    For four hours, we caught a total of three fish two of the fish were bait fish couldn’t even keep them overpriced for the fish we caught in the time we were out a total of 4 four hours we were out I will not use This Guide again I feel like we should have been refunded some of our money there was nine of us on the boat with four rods and reels there wasn’t enough rods for everyone to fish with

    Andrew was an excellent and joyfull guide. He had us on peacock bass within minutes of our start and we caught the trifecta of peacocks, clown knife fish and large mouth. My son and I will definitely use him next time!

    Alex is an awesome guide! Was on time and super fun to hang out with. But mostly importantly he absolutely put me on the fish! Will 100% book Alex again the next time I’m in Clearwater, and you should too if you want the chance to get hooked up with huge tarpon and monster snook!!! A+

    We didn't get to take our trip with Tim due to weather and other extenuating circumstances that he encountered. He did take care of us by having another charter service take us out. I would have liked to have gone out with Tim but we had a great time with Miller Fishing Co. Captain Matt took great care of us and we had a fantastic time. I will only give three stars because I haven't really used your service.

    Obviously we fought the gulf storm the good Lord gave us a favorable morning. We didn’t catch the fish I had hoped for and didn’t get to go out into the Gulf. Having said that Levi worked real hard with us to catch fish on the inlet. My boys caught some bonnet sharks which was exciting and I caught a dinner plate size sting ray. I would recommend Levi for any trip on the inlet. Thank you. We are talking about June 1 st next year for a gulf trip for snapper and grouper

    They nailed it with name! It was truly a Captain Experience and we had the pleasure of going out with Capt Hunter and his mate, Robert. The seas were rough, the sign was shining and the water was splashing. For most, they would have turned tail to head back to shore but the salt air was filled with the giggles of my family as Capt skirted over the waves, flawlessly. We bummed, we bounced, we laughed and we caught some beautiful fish. Capt Hunter was truly the perfect definition of an experienced Captain. He was safe, cautious, full of knowledge and fun! The whole 8 hour trip was worth every penny saved and every memory made. The Colonel (aka the Capt) will 💯 be our go to charter Capt for future trip. Robert, was fun and charming and a very valuable part of the crew. We truly had the best time and would highly recommend them to anyone. The Captain Experiences team goes above and beyond to make sure it’s smooth sailing from the moment you book a charter with them. The communication is second to none with them. Available at all times of the day. Thank you, Gentlemen for a exhilarating experience. You haven’t seen the last of us.

    Had a fantastic morning on Lake Austin with my 7-year old son and Aaron. Aaron was patient, kind and helpful and made sure my son had a very fun and relaxed atmosphere for his first experience fishing. Highly recommend Aaron as a great guide for both kids and adults!
