We had the best time! First time on a boat and they did a remarkable job of making sure everyone was alright and hydrated. Very knowledgeable and we caught Redfish and Flounder and lots of catch and release fish. Wonderful day! Highly recommend for beginners and skilled!

By far the best fishing guide I’ve ever been with , he kept us comfortable the whole time knowing there were fish right under the boat. You know it’s good fishing when we were catching triple hook ups all day and broke over 100+ fish of all sizes . My arms are sore and I’m sure I will feel worse in the morning but I do know that victory was served today and it was an honor fishing with such an Awesome fishing guide. Even when the fish slowed down and when I say slowed down, might have been a fish every 5 minutes we moved and was right on top of more fish. He went above and beyond my expectations and I will definitely be giving him a call again. YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS CHARTER , and I promise that I wish I could give him a star for every fish that we brought in the boat. And to you Captain Carlo a job well done buddy you rock and know your stuff when it comes to fishing.
