Captain Matt was the perfect person to take my sons and I out. He was really patient since none of us were experienced and took us to some great spots. Caught a lot of fish and kids had a great time. They kept saying we had to go out with Captain Matt again. Thank you!

Captain Matt is a cool dude and knows his stuff. It was my son and I first time inshore fishing off a boat and he really showed us the ropes. I will definitely booking another trip soon and recommend him to my family and friends!

Captain Matt worked around my schedule and took me fishing in the afternoon even though what I had booked was a morning trip. It was a very slow day but I still caught several fish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the trip!
