We went with Cody and had a great time. I bass fish a lot but never thought about Alligator Gar fishing. But some friends from Czech Republic came to see me and that was on there bucket list. So we booked with Captain Experiences. The whole experience from start to finish was great. Shawna was great and keep us updated on everything. and was very quick to respond to any questions that we had. Cody sure knows what he is doing. our largest was 160.25 lbs. and I do think I will be going back. I do recommend you give it a try. Terry Varden

Booking with captain bubba and his crew changes fishing into catching plain and simple. He will put you on big fish all day long. Seeing the absolute mass of these Gar in person is a memory I will always cherish! Do yourself a favor and book with this man, come back to this post and thank me later.
