    This was exactly the fishing fun we needed for our super spur of the moment trip with a teenaged kid that wanted to catch fish in Florida. Lots of different species, super friendly contain and never a dull moment. It helped that the weather was great and we caught lots of fish.

    Captain Kenny was outstanding. He got us reeling in fish right away. We kept him bust baiting hooks and netting big fish until it was time to call it a day. Great day fishing. Highly recommend, thank you very much. Looking forward to another fishing trip with him next year.

    We had a great time on our trip! Kenny was very happy to explain the area to us and very good at getting us in the zone.

    Diane F. with Richard T. of Fort Myers Beach, Florida

    Had a great time. Even though the fish weren't hitting hard, we caught some and the captain was very patient and worked hard to make it a great experience.

    Mendel M. with Richard T. of Fort Myers Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Rich was by far the best captain we have ever had during our fishing adventures! His boat was very comfortable. He made the effort to go to the fishing spots that would get us the most action. He was fun, funny and very quick to re-bait our hooks as soon as we lost our bait to the "nibblers" out there. My fiance and I cannot wait to go out with him again! Janet
