About Your Guide

Captain Brian is extremely passionate about not only fishing the beautiful Matanzas River ecosystem, but enjoying its bountiful array of other species that call this estuary home. Captain Brian loves running fishing trips because he gets to show his clients excellent fishing as well as the beautiful landscapes and wildlife of Palm Coast. He has extensive knowledge of where the fish are, as well as about the marine life that calls this place their home. After 50 years of fishing Palm Coast and its surrounding water, it's no wonder he can provide such great trips!
