Tarpon fishing with Captain Wayne was nothing short of amazing! He knew exactly where to take us, after anchoring the boat we caught a tarpon within minutes! The fun only continued as we caught two more fighting tarpons! Captain Wayne is a great guy, good conversations, fun stories and definitely a lifetime of fishing experience to share! Highly recommend and we will definitely fish with him again! Thank you Captain for making this trip a memorable one!

WOW. . . WOW. . . WOW. . . I said my wife wanted to catch some big fish. . . Capt. Wayne said, let’s give it the old College Try. . . . Im not sure what College he went to, but it must have been a good one! We were told that the Tarpon were a little slow, but maybe we would be lucky. After bringing the 5th. . . yes FIFTH monster Tarpon to the boat, we were certain that it was a lot more Skill of the Captain with a little luck on the side! Capt. Wayne was very professional, organized and knowledgeable. As we were having success, there were not less than 5 other guides in the area whose clients had to watch our show while they were catching nothing! What a trip! We would HIGHLY recommend Captain Wayne and we will certainly be booking again! Truly Exceeded our Expectations!!!!

Far exceeded are expectations…we were on fish as soon as we arrived at every location. Caught our snapper limit and hour and thirty into our 4 hour trip. Also caught 6 sea trout and caught and released many more to include Spanish Mackeral and Blues. Captain was a great host.

We spent 4 hours with Captain Wayne fishing for snapper in the Florida Bay. The fishing was a little slow at first but Wayne kept moving around to his fishing spots and quickly had us catching mangrove snapper. We caught a limit of snappers for both of us on the boat. Caught some other species that we released. We were wanting to learn more about the fishing and boating in the Keys and Wayne was very open and helpful with all of our questions. Very enjoyable afternoon on the water with a captain that has a ton of experience fishing and boating around Marathon.
