Captain Ben gave us a great trip in the Everglades. Put us on fish all day and gave us many opportunities. Made quick adjustments to the situations and made sure we had dinner too! Thanks Captain!

Ben was very knowledgeable as to where the fish were. From the Barricuda my grandson caught, to all the other fish my son in law, and myself caught. The weather was tremendous. Zach, and Ben changed their schedule to accommodate the 2 families. Will definitely book with them again.
