It was a very windy day so things were tough. Trout fishing was not real productive but did land a few keepers. Red fishing got better right at nightfall. Captain Sid probably stayed longer than he planned but we were able to land a 19”, 24” & 25” Red. I feel if the wind had cooperated the trip would have been more productive. The Captain was great and an enjoyable trip was had by all. One of the few guides that is reasonably priced and he includes snacks, drinks and your bait at no extra cost.

Captain Sid took myself, 2 other adults and my 8-year-old son out on a wonderful fishing trip. We all really had a great time. We were able to catch several flounder, a bunch of redfish, and a lot of other fun fish. My son’s favorites were the 3 foot shark and the alligator gar he reeled in. Sid did great with my son spent a lot of the day helping him stay on fish. We have nothing but good to say about our experience and will be using Captain Sid again.
