Great day on the water. Lots of fun, saved the monsters for another day but lots of fishing action. A few snook and tons of fun ladyfish action. Capt Roy is very personable and loves what he does

Fish were hard to find, but Roy worked hard trying lots of his favorite spots until he put us on fish.

The trip I had with Captain Roy was amazing! Being from out of town he was very helpful because I'm used to fishing for pan fish and fishing in Florida is a little different then that. My buddy, his 6 year old son, and I all had a lot of laughs and caught some fish. Caught my biggest fish and got to see a dolphin swimming around our boat. I'll definitely be planning on another trip with Captain Roy.

My wife and i had a fantastic time with Captain Roy. He took us to an amazing fishing spot where we kept pulling up spotted sea bass. The spot was also very beatiful where we saw dolphins and even a manitee swimming around. I will surely do this again on my next trip.

We booked a 4 hour morning fishing trip with Captain Roy part of a bachelorette weekend. We had a blast! Captain Roy was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. Not to mention he knew all the good spots and we caught plenty of fish! 100 % would recommend him and we hope to book him again in October! Thanks Captain!

We booked the half day trip with Captain Roy for our family of four. Our meet up location was changed but was communicated to us a couple hours prior to heading out. Captain Roy was extremely knowledgeable of the area and where the best spots were to catch fish. He was very helpful with my sons helping them bait their hooks when needed. He had a great personality and kept us laughing during the trip. Overall it was a wonderful afternoon of fishing and between the four of us, we caught 14 fish of several varieties. We would certainly book with Captain Roy again if we were in the area.

Originally we were scheduled to go out at 2PM, but rain was expected in late afternoon so I contacted Roy and he agreed to meet up a couple hours early. Our group included me, my wife, son (12), and his friend for a 4 hour charter. Being a midwesterner Roy reminded me of myself so we got along great. I was also worried about it being so hot and the fish not biting, Roy told me not to worry it’s not like freshwater - the water still moves so they’ll bit. We caught snook, catfish, mangrove red snapper, and redfish.
