My 9 year old daughter and I had a great time with captain Scott. He put us on the fish and was helpful and patient with both of us. This was our first salt water fishing trip, but it won’t be our last.

Caught a variety of fish and had a great time with my wife, grandson and his girlfriend. Highly recommend Scott as a fishing guide. In fact, next week we are going out with our son, his wife, our granddaughter and her girlfriend with Scott.
