    Charlie was a fantastic guide, my buddies and I will definitely contact him again for iguana, Python, or gator hunts. We’re military and got along great with him. Took us to a nice canal, not much water traffic at all, so we were first on the water hunting, not picking up scraps left from other hunters. Went during the summer, which winter is better, but still shot over 20 iguanas. Was a great time, highly recommend Charlie.

    Jason was great! He was very responsive during the lead up to the trip. I had my wife and 4 kids on the trip. We all enjoyed the time together! Gorgeous day. I recommend using Jason for your fishing journeys!
