Excellent captain who was extremely knowledgeable of his area and worked hard to keep us in fish. Lots of rod bending hard fighting fish species inshore in the keys that I was not aware of! Thanks!

Captain Anthony was great with my 9 and 7 year old. He was quick to bait the hook and quick to fix a broken line. Put us in a lot of fish. We look forward to seeing him next year. Thanks captain

Fantastic morning fishing with Captain Anthony! Not only did we catch a 100 pound Tarpon but we caught some yellow Jack as well for dinner. Excellent to eat! He’s a really nice guy and very knowledgeable about all things related to the ocean and the fish that swim in it.
