    I don't write many reviews, But this Captain is worth taking time to share with others how great and down to earth he is. Not only did he go above and beyond to make my trip great with conversation and put me on fish. But shared his equipment and knowledge with other Captains. Colby not only has the experience but the personality to make your trip rememberable. 5* +

    Captain Bobby was GREAT. The 2 hour inshore is a perfect length of time if you have kids, or if you don't know if you will enjoy fishing or not. My son has been talking about fishing forever and I found Captain Bobby via a Google search. This was the BEST DAY of our trip to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. He's excellent and patient with kids - and will clean up your fish and cut it up and provide you with a restaurant recommendation where they will fry up your fish for you. I even caught a 40 lb Black Drum fish - and it was my first time ever fishing! 10/10.
