If you are ready to have a great time and catch a lot of fish, Craig is your guy. His skill and knowledge of the land is the reason I caught my trophy fish. This guy will go above and beyond to keep you safe and make sure everyone has a great time.

I did a half day flats/back country trip with Cpt. Craig. Let me tell you it was the best time I’ve ever had! He put me on tarpon that I only dreamed of. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone!!

Craig is fantastic at what he does. Whether you want to fish the backwaters, catch tarpon, spearfish, catch & release Goliath Grouper, or simply see the beauty of the Keys Craig is your man. He also is a wizard of dodging the summer storms! 🙂
